Oh the pain!

Today we played in a co-ed softball tournament sponsored by my husband's work (NDT) for some charity. I had been dreading this event all week, as a) I haven't played softball since last fall, b) I'm fat and out of shape, and c) it was predicted to be over 100 degrees today. We were required to play a minimum of 2 games. I had resigned to this. I could suffer through 2 games. We would be done by 11am. Unfortunately, we won the first game which set us up to play two MORE games. Yay. We ended up losing the next two and playing in the hot sweltering sun until well after noon. I overheated. We went to lunch as a team. We then came home, turned on the AC and died. I woke up from my carb induced, exhausted body coma with a migraine. Tomorrow we are planned to go to Lagoon for the day. I'm excited cause I really want/need to see our friends whom we are meeting there. I'm not excited because we are spending a second hot weekend day in the sun. In the words of Danny Glover, "I'm getting too old for this shit Riggs".

I think our minds were willing but our bodies were left wanting in game 3. I totally think we could have beat them again but I had nothing left in the tank by game 3..
