Tonight, I joined my first soccer team since college. It has been a long time coming, and something I have always wanted to do, but never had the opportunity until now. It is an indoor co-ed league for anyone over 18. Our team is made up of 10 guys and 2 girls. We won our first game 11-6, and I even scored a goal myself. However, I learned quite a bit my first day back on the pitch after 7 years away from the sport.

  1. I am not as young and in shape as I once was.
  2. Running a 5K a couple times a week is not enough to keep my endurance up to play a full game of soccer.
  3. For the most part, soccer skills are like riding a bike, and most of them seem to be coming back rather quickly.
  4. It is really easy to jump in and play with strangers when they all talk to each other during the game.
  5. This is what I’ve needed to kick my butt into gear about many things including working out and reaching out to others for Christ.
