Fall is Volleyball...


For some reason this year I am especially nostalgic for my volleyball days.  I love coaching and I love teaching and those things always come around every fall, but there is one thing I especially miss this fall and that is playing on a volleyball team.  I miss riding around in a van/bus with all the girls, I miss the thrill of playing and being great at something and then everyone cheering, I miss the inside jokes and friendships that you build, and yes I even miss the early morning practices.  I really never thought I would say that but I do, I even miss the lifting/conditioning, I feel like I took it all for granted now that it is gone. Thank you to all those people out there that were either on a team with me, coached me, or helped me in anyway to play the game I love.  I miss you volleyball thanks for being so good to me....

I know what you mean.... even though I didn't move on to college vb... it's still a bittersweet moment when fall comes around and it's time to remember the joys of playing vb and missing being on a team. :)

Oh I miss it too, um sometimes, college ruined volleyball for me for a little while but now I miss it. I do miss club though :) I hope you are doing well, I am so jealous that you are coaching, I hope I can go back to doing it someday!

So I understand the missing feeling. I have recently taken up swimming again and have realized how much I miss the 2 hour practices. I never felt better in my life than after a good morning workout. I miss the people associated. I miss the thrill of being up on the block, waiting for the whistle, and swimmming my butt off to win the race. Oh boy! I miss it, and I feel like I didn't enjoy it as I should while I was doing it.

I love the pic of your face on the media guide. Not the one of you spiking but the watermark version of you in the background blocking.
