There are times when I’m not sure that Jason thinks that I’ve ever done anything athletic in my life since I had long stopped with all of those kind of pursuits by the time we met. But I like to remind him every now and then that I did, in fact, grow up participating in the typical youth sports. For instance, in 1990 I had my first softball game for the Tigers!
I ended up playing softball for three years but wasn’t much of a fan of it when it got more competitive. I also still bear a scar on my knee from one nasty fall into second base one year. And to add a little more to my sports defenses, I also played golf for a couple years, basketball for one season, and soccer for one season. I did gymnastics most years through middle school and danced one year. I might not have been a pro at anything but I did try a lot!
