Takin’ It Easy Today

April 5, 2009 · 2 comments

I had a nice long list of things to accomplish yesterday, and I got most of them done.  I didn’t get to put my kayak in the water, but what the heck, it was 50 degrees outside. 

Today I’ll be hanging out with my brother John in the morning.  We’ll take his dog Clyde for a nice long walk in the woods and then kick the soccer ball around for a bit. 

I’m going to start playing soccer on Tuesdays with Tomers and a bunch of other dudes.  You remember Thomas Rose.  According to Tom, with the exception of the 10 year-old, I’ll probably be the youngest player there.  I’m 32.

Whatever.  I’ll be happy for the exercise in a contact-sport environment.  I really don’t like “running” as a hobby or form of exercise, but I can get down with chasing a soccer ball around a field. 

I haven’t played soccer in quite a few years – hence the practice with John.  John’s the assistant varsity coach at the local Jesuit private high school – among other teams.  He should be able to get my ass in shape in a couple of hours, right?  Yeah, probably not.  Either way, it’ll be good to get my soccer muscles stretched out again before I play on Tuesday.

So no hike this weekend.  I’ll take care of Graham and Doubletop next weekend.  The weather’s supposed to be pretty nice today (it was supposed to be nice yesterday as well), so maybe I’ll have a chance to put my kayak in the water in the afternoon.

I still have plenty of things on my to-do list to keep me busy.

Have a great day, yo.

So not only are you one of the youngest players, but now you’ve also gotten more practice time than the rest of us combined – and with an actual coach no less! I expect you’ll be running circles and all sorts of other shapes around the rest of us come Tuesday night.
