Softball – Yeah!!

Yesterday was my first day playing softball in about 8 years. It was awesome! Thankfully I am somewhat in shape to be able to jump back into the running, stretching and twisting that softball entails. My legs and right shoulder are pretty sore today, but a good sore. I loved having John and the kids there to watch. Austin was a great cheerleader. I now know what Mom must have felt like bringing us to all of her games, watching us climb the bleachers, play at the part and run after the foul balls. It was awesome. From those who were able to make the practice yesterday it looks like we are going to have a great team that will be lots of fun to play with.

This past weekend was also a very expensive one, wow sporting gear is expensive. Three pairs of cleats, two pairs of shin pads, a pair of running shoes, socks, camping gear for Emily and new clothes for the kids. Thank goodness for a tax refund and we did not have to worry about where the funds were going to come from. We are now ready for the summer 🙂

Going to take the new runners out for a spin tonight while Emily is at Brownies, from the walking I did in them the last couple of days they feel great! It makes sense to go to a specialty running store to get properly fitted for running shoes. Hopefully they will feel better than the last couple of pairs that I bought. My goal for the next two weeks is to stay on track for running so that I am ready for the 15 km on the 12th. The cross training will be on my bike as the elliptical is still in storage, however I will not complain about being able to get some fresh air.

Cheers to the summer season beginning!
