Put me in Coach....

As some of you may recall, I joined a co-ed softball team. Last night was our first set of back-to-back games and they didn't start until 9pm. The weather last night was cool, only about 58 degrees and breezy when we started and I was dressed in my winter running pants, tube socks, and long-sleeved shirt under my jersey t-shirt. My jersey number? I didn't get to pick since I joined late ... I had to choose from the extras made ... my number ... 1. Ha!

I played left field the first game and sat out the second. We had more girls than guys, so I opted to sit out and let the girl who showed up late play. I was okay with it ... I didn't want to injure myself prior to the half marathon. I missed a couple pop-flies and really need to work on that... as far as my batting goes.... 1 - got out on first, 1 - single, 1 - RBI, and 1 - Run. Not too shabby.

It was super fun, but by the time 11pm rolled around, I was not only a bit tired but the temp had dropped to 37 degrees and you could see your breath! Better than playing in snow ... fo sho!

We won both games. I think the first was 7-3 and the second was 15-0 in 2 innings. Hopefully I will have pictures next week!

Happy Hump Day, y'all!

I used to play in a softball league every summer. I haven't the last two summers...partially because I don't think I can make it to 11 pm anymore AND because drinking ALWAYS follows a game of softball :) Have fun!
