Soccer Game - Big Win for Alemannia Aixpress - Just Missed a Hattrick!

We won 5-3 today. I played pretty well in my second game back...netting two goals. The first goal was a breakaway that I nutmegged the keeper on 10 minutes into the game to give us a 1-0 lead. 10 minutes into the second half I had another breakway and chipped the keeper from the corner of the 18 (he was way out of position). I dropped back to sweeper and made one run that nearly resulted in my third time finding the back of the ole onion bag. I had a nice give and go with Dan, and again had the keeper out of position but after running 60 yards full out I stopped and shot from 18. I grazed the post upper 90....I probably could have dribbled around the keeper for the tally. I am getting kind of old so I won't have too many more chances like that for a hattrick. Oh well, live and learn!

I'm Ready to Run

The neck is better. I am finally ready to run after a long layoff. The plan is to start slow. Maybe 2 easy miles tonight? Anyone care to wager (riight, like anyone cares either way) if I actually do it?

Neck Injury Update

So just a quick update, I may be back and blogging about running again. Waiting for MRI results, but my neck feels a bit better. I was able to play co-ed soccer at Red Bug last night, which means I should be able to get back to jogging. I had our 3 best chances on goal, including one that hit the post from 45 yards. Of course, with the Roy luck, it didn't bounce in. Anyways, one thing has gotten me better...ok two.....REST and Prayer. Now I am back to feeling closer to normal (which means my Crohn's disease is bothering me again). So stay tuned for more stories of Crohn's Disease and Marathon running.
