Not Winning Any Awards

Last night was, thankfully, my last night of playing soccer (at least for the Corporate Games). I don't know on earth happened, but the night before I did something to my legs in my sleep. I know, it sounds ridiculous, but that's the truth. I somehow dreamt about my legs being hurt and remember actually feeling pain. I think maybe I stretched them in my sleep? Not sure. All I know is that when I stepped onto the soccer field, my upper thighs both cramped up so much, especially when I tried to run and kick, that I didn't think I'd make it. I thought I'd fall for sure. In fact, I thought there was a good possibility I'd end up on the field and someone would have to carry me off on a stretcher. Nice. Needless to say, I didn't win any sort of awards and the fact that we lost was fine with me (as there still weren't enough girls to sub out, so we all had to play the WHOLE game again...ugh). I did get a few kicks in, though, and even a head shot (don't be jealous), so I guess it wasn't a total loss. Plus, it reminded me of the great feeling of being on a team and everyone working together for a common goal. I loved that part of it. I hardly knew anyone on my team (despite all working for the same company), so it was cool to experience a few games together. By the way, on a totally separate note, don't forget to vote for Failed Uprising at: You can vote twice a day! Come on, you know you want to. :)
