So Stinkin' Proud of Myself!

For those of you who know me, I have been playing tennis for a little over a year. I had been getting pretty decent when the DREADED ankle accident happened. I went down pretty hard and came out several months later with surgery. I then had an "extended" stay in Guatemala and didn't come home until April. The Sunday after returning, my team had a match. I played in it and lost! I am NOT a loser, so it was a tough loss for me. After much practicing with my team and hitting around with Tim, I joined two single leagues. I am currently 1st in my division in one of them and ranked 35th out of 208 in the other! I still don't feel that I am totally back, but my confidence is sure building! Last night, I had a match with one of the toughest girls in my division. We went to a tie breaker in the first set and then to 7-5 in the second set. I came home a WINNER! I was so pumped up! I have four more matches over the next 5 days, so hopefully, I can stay on top.

Okay...weird post, but I just had to share my excitement!
