Spring Soccer and Sunburn

This weekend I was blest with something a little painful and yet ever so wonderful. For those of you readers who know me I will say it is not another tattoo or piercing but rather the first sunburn of the summer! Yes! A sign from Mother Nature to Wisconsin that summer may in fact just be around the corner. This past Saturday, along with 8 other members of the Alverno Inferno soccer team and two coaches, I (and the first warm weather we've seen this year) woke up around 5:30 to get on a van for an hour drive north for our spring season games. (**quick crash course in college soccer… our regular season is in fall but we are allowed a short season in the spring. We are given a certain number of practice days (I believe 16) and one competition date.**) The Inferno trekked to Lakeland College for four 20 minute 7 v 7 games. We lost all four but we really put in an effort. Six members of the high school team I coach even showed up which was really cool. They got to see me score a goal. Made me feel a little cool, not gonna lie.

Along with the sun came continual testing; one test before the game and another test after. Pleased to report though that my highest test of the day was 230 at 5:45 when I tested after waking up. Otherwise, while at Lakeland my blood was anywhere between 91 and 160. Another score for my team and me. My blood did sort of sink later that night to 70 but a small Sierra Mist later and we were back on track!

Back to work, I can’t have fun online all day. L
