My workplace announced this week we are having a soccer league this summer. A couple colleagues popped by my desk to ask me if I wanted to be on thier team. I scoffed. I said that I wasn’t very good at soccer and declined, assuring them all I would do is catch the ball with my face.
The next day I realized I had made a mistake, these lovely folks had asked me to play with them. I am able to run and kick. It occurred to me the youngest players will be 21 years old. Most will be clustered around 30. I was worried I’d be too old. My partner laughed and reminded me I’m 41, I keep forgetting!
I’m at my best surrounded by people and having fun, what better way to get to know some folks I work with a bit better?
It’s co-ed teams playing full field outdoor soccer. I’m thinking I’ll want to ramp up my running until the season starts in May.
Here’s hoping I have fun, make some friends and get a smidge of exercise.
