Lay It All Out On the Field

• By

This past Sunday was my church’s 2nd Annual Women’s Field day and it was so much fun!  Even though two days later I feel like I’ve been caned,  the healthy competition, teamwork and workout made for a great time.

My team was called, “TuTu cute but, ready for war” or Tutu Cute for short.  We would gain points based on our uniforms so, we had to have something nice yet original.  Our colors were berry pink, black, with a hint of camoflauge.  We wore tutus that we made ourselves from tulle and ribbon, and had berry-colored t-shirts made with the team name on the front.

Events

There were team events and individual events which included:

  • An obstacle course
  • A relay race
  • A hula-hoop match (I surprised myself by hula-hooping for 2 minutes straight!)
  • Bean bag toss
  • Softball throw
  • 100 yard dash
  • Over, under

I competed in all except for the bean bag toss and softball throw.  I felt really good at the time but, every inch of my body is extremely sore even now!  I have a slight competitive edge so, I know I pushed myself to do more than I would normally.
