After work today, I went on a run with Susan....about a mile into our run, we got passed (seriously passed) by the high school cross country team.
I got to thinking...not talking, mostly because we were heading up a monster hill and talking would have been rough then :)
I wish I had participated in sports in high school.
I flat-out refused, saying it was because I hated it. Mostly, though, it was because I was afraid of failure. I avoided activities I thought I might struggle with at all costs, claiming to-good-ed-ness. Ha... I was not too good, but any means.
Now, though, as a (somewhat) grownup, I would kill to have free group sports available. I'm slightly less afraid to struggle in front of peers AND I am far cheaper.
