There is a man that runs around my town all of the time carrying himself with no evidence of being tired. You may see him out at the park r...


If volleyball is a girl's sport then call me Betty

I love playing volleyball, but growing up I always thought it was primarily a girl sport.  I've been enlightened.  I really enjoy playing volleyball.  I guess Betty would be my female alter ego.  Why Betty though?  Well, it's the first name that came to mind when typing.  Sometimes my fingers just go ahead of my brain and type things.  It's called typoicular tourrets - it's an annoying thing but something I've come to live with.

After our night service last night at church we had several people get together to play some volleyball.  Our service got over at 7pm and I didn't lock up the church until after 10:30pm.  Yes, 3 1/2 hours of continuous volleyball going on in our gym.  Love it!

I'm sore today but it was worth it.  Not everytime that pain and soreness shows it's face is it a bad thing.

I'm a sports guy so I love to just be active.  I'm hoping that I can get someone together in town to play some tennis this evening.  Now, talk about a workout - tennis has got it going on!

I also plan on hitting the gym at some time tonight to get my miles in.  It's nice to have a gym that is open late at night.  It's not the biggest gym but it has all that I need.  I have a 5k coming up in April and I'd really like to get to the sub 30 mark again.  I don't think i've run a 5k in under 30 minutes in over a year.  Wow, that just blew my mind.  It's been so long for that to happen - it's going to happen.  I ran a 5k not to long ago and finished in 33 minutes.  I was close, but I want to be there.  It'll happen this year.  Oh to be back at 25 minutes and some odd change again. 

With the idea of alter egos -- it made me think of Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory.  I don't always have a TV reference with each post, but "Betty" reminds me of when Rob and Drama (Chris Pfaff) go get hypnotized for success.  The hypnotist calls for each of them to find their inner self and to name their inner self.  They start with Drama and he says, "Steve".  They make fun of Drama a lot and keep laughing that he could have picked anything, but he chose Steve.  It was really funny.  Rob's was something like "Battle Hardened". 

So, I guess maybe I need to come up with a better volley innerself name.
