#Latergram from last night's recovery after @zogsports soccer playoffs. No girl subs= couldn't document the double-header. We came in 2nd. It's summer; many of our players had to drop from holiday travels & injuries. The positive is it's spotlighted a number of our less leaned-on teammates who stepped up to make some surprising moves.
. As for me, I'm coming into my own w #footie. I've got a *long* way to go, but practice is helping as is having some really encouraging teams. I'd watched for years, but was told I "probably shouldn't play" since I was inexperienced; I'd likely annoy teammates. The Lindsay we know would have called BS & signed up regardless--which eventually happened. That ill advice came during a weird stretch of time where I [temporarily] misplaced my #tenacity. #Storyforanotherday, but #soccer has given the last few months a sense of #normalcy. I'm my #bestself conquering several projects at once. I'd say I'm a physically/mentally strong woman, but it became frustrating when my brain & body stopped cooperating. Suddenly, there were things I couldn't train for. The harder I pushed against limitations the more disappointing the outcome. #Soccer was completely new. I didn't have to explain myself to the expectations of others--even though it hasn't stopped me from self-critiquing. It became the perfect activity to sew my weeks together. In the meantime I've met some really wonderful people whom I look forward to seeing on and off the field. Girls nights, BBQs, I'm even training again for a half marathon this autumn!
.I have a few weeks off before #fallseason starts. Looking forward to capturing it w you all. #rooseveltisland #manhattan #nyc #zogambassador #zogsports #persistenceiskey #bedroomscenes #quietchaotics #storiesofmylife #igreads #bookstagram #recreationalsports (Updates later in the week on the books I've been finishing)
