It was just me and the weights or the hotel elliptical machine. Having played team sports most of my life I missed the camaraderie and social interaction that these teams’ sports bring. After much consternation, I landed on the following number one be able to do 100 pushups straight no stopping. I wanted a tangible challenge at six-six and six-seven on a sunny day with long arms and a 37-inch sleeve. My body is built for sports like basketball, rowing, and swimming. It’s not built for snowboarding being a jockey or doing a lot of push-ups. On a good day, I could probably complete 40 half-ass push-ups in a row. So to get to 100 would be challenging. Number two playing a tennis League. While a volleyball league will be much more team-oriented. I knew with my travel schedule, I could not be a reliable teammate. I played basketball in college, but in high school, I was on the tennis team and I wanted to pick the sport back up. As a bonus, we could learn to play tennis together as a family. I decided to join a tennis league to meet and compete against other players. If time allowed, I could also team up with someone to compete in doubles matches. Know thyself know that weaknesses.”
