Up until bout day, my stomach was in knots! And Spring Break was not as amazing as it could have been because all week, since returning from Austin, I stressed and stressed about this game! I didn’t want to let my team down and I didn’t want to let my friends down.
The night before, my team had a Boss dinner and watched The Godfather – which I have never seen [what?!]. We kept referring to certain themes and scenes and characteristics that seemed Bossy. It was a lot of fun and many, many jokes were made. My teammates are some of the wittiest ladies I have ever met.
Once the bout day came around and I was out of the house with my gear, snacks, and cameras, everything seemed okay…getting to the venue especially early seemed like it helped more than it hindered.
I also made sure to eat plenty beforehand [but not right before…barf].
All in all I feel like this was a great learning experience. I can’t wait to get better and better and better!
I am so incredibly thankful for my friends and co-workers who came to the game. And especially my friend that asked for my camera so he could photograph my bout. Yay!
