Softball and Other Stuff

We actually are undefeated in league so far, with 4 wins.  We haven't faced our toughest opponents yet, so we will see how long that holds.  I feel like we are hanging on by the skin of our teeth, but we just might make the State play-offs.  We'll see how it goes.

I am taking the team to watch #24 ranked Oregon State play Utah tomorrow.  Pac-12 softball is the best in the Nation, with the SEC not far behind.  I'm a firm believer in watching the next level to help you learn the game and improve your own skills.  It's important for the girls to see the intensity that the college girls play with, not just during the game, but during their warm ups as well.  Hopefully it won't end up getting rained out.  That would be a bummer.

In other news, I am now down 5 lbs.  My clothes still fit too tight, but I am definitely feeling a lot more comfortable in my own skin.  I went for a 2.5 mile walk/run today.  I actually increased my running interval pace by about a minute from last week!  I know I won't be as trained as I would like for my 10k coming up in May, but I'll at least be able to do it.

My box of meds arrived on Tuesday, but I have yet to open them.  I suppose I should make sure everything is in there that is supposed to be.  I just haven't taken the time.  I don't start the Lupron injections until the 18th, so I haven't felt in a hurry.  Although, now that I think about it, that is next week already!  Yikes!  Time sure does go by quickly.  Before we know it, we will be doing our transfer.  Scary.

Well, as usual, I have very little time.  I have several errands that I need to run before softball practice.  I just thought I'd write a little something to let you all know I am still alive and well!
