Stiff, Sore and Sunburnt!

If you're thinking I'm going to write about books, then that's an odd title isn't it?  Actually, I'm writing about me.  I'm very stiff and sore today because I played volleyball ALL DAY yesterday!  Six hours in the hot 90+ sunshine (33C).  My team is part of a summer volleyball league and we've been playing the other teams all summer.  Yesterday was our end of the season tournament.  We had to play each team once - which meant 8 games in a row (except one bye) and the top four teams played in the playoffs (which meant another 3-4 games). 

We went into the tournament as the first place team.  So we had a team meeting before play started and my husband, whose also a teammate asked, "What's our game plan?" and Missy, the cheerleader of the team (and the one who tells us to pick it up when we're dogging) said, "To win."

Well, after two games in that heat, I thought I was going to pass out or throw up! I did survive the day (just embarrassed by how out of shape I was from traveling all summer) and our team stuck to our game plan.  We went undefeated, winning the tournament!!  Probably the first and last time I'll be able to type those words ;>  My other volleyball teams are always in the middle of the pack and I don't mind, I play competitive, but also for fun.  We weren't the youngest or the oldest team, but I think the most experienced (or stubborn).

I just wanted to share that :)  And also this - I did an interview with Book Lovers, Inc today and we're giving away a free signed copy of SPY GLASS to one lucky winner!  So hop on over and enter to win.

  2. Wow. I can't play sports -- it'd hurt my back.

    Did you know that if you stop feeling thirsty and you haven't been drinking in a long while, you are dehydrated? Vomiting, fatigue and dizziness are other symptoms. I've had this before.

  3. Did you win the tournament? I'm jealous that you are on a sports team. I think it would help me keep in shape. I always think I need to run some laps with Ari and Janco.
