I think I'm getting old. Or...maybe I'm not so old, but I'm definitely out of shape. (Duh)

Ten years ago I was the captain of a championship volleyball team. Ten years ago, I could play a five-set match with no breaks. Ten years ago I had a deadly-accurate serve that no one could touch. Ten years ago I thought nothing of throwing myself flat out on the ground to dig up a hard serve.

Last Saturday, Paul and I bumped a volleyball around with the kids for about half an hour.

On Sunday, I could barely walk. My butt and quads were not happy with me. My shoulders and forearms, while not quite as upset, were still pretty pissed.

Having said that--I'm dying to play more.
