February 6, 2011!

So now that soccer is over I have been overwhelmed with how much spare time I have. I don't know what to do with myself! It's like the 4 hours the soccer used to take up are free and I'm completely bored. So I decided I need something competitive and athletic to fill up that space. So I've decided to do this:

And if you finish you even get one of these! 

So I'm going to get a new pair of these (they look pretty sweet and a good Christmas gift right?? hint hint David)

And I'm going to start training! So on February 6, 2011 I will be running 26.2 miles! I am excited.. I never thought I would do a full marathon but I figured what the heck might as well! Wish me luck!

The End Of A Journey

So this past weekend was my last soccer game at SUU. My parents, David's parents and David's sister Jaime and husband Christian all came up to watch and be with us. It was so fun having them there and it meant so much to me! It was definitely emotional and hard to play my last game. It's been a huge part of my life for so long and it's a big part of who I am. I am going to miss the game and the girls a ton! I definitely feel so lucky and blessed to have had the experience to play in college. I made so many memories and friends that I will never forget. Here are a few pictures from the weekend:

Now this is the law of the Jungle... (we had to memorize this poem by Rudyard Kipling and recite it before practice if coach called on us hahaha it hangs in our team room so we had to take a picture with it)

Elyse, me and Erin before the game

T BIRDS 2010! I love my teammates!

My parents and David walking me out on our senior game- it was raining and absolutely freezing!


Praying before the game

Playing for the last time.. (I had two assists.. but they took away the second one saying it was offisides- which I didn't think it was and I definitely let the ref know it :)  It's okay they were still both pretty sweet!)

This was a game I will never forget. I feel so grateful for the support of my family. I can say that my mom is my number one fan. Since I was a little girl she drove me to countless games, tournaments, practices and never complained. I think I can count on one hand the games that she has missed. My Dad has always supported me and been there when I needed to vent or needed some advice. He missed lots of work and drove lots of hours to come see me play in Cedar. He calls me his warrior :) And of course my husband for watching me for three years, putting up with the countless hours this game requires on and off the field, and listening to me tell you about ALL of it :) I love you all so much!! This journey may have ended but there is a new one just beginning and I'm ready for it!
