Saying thanks and goodbye

My FiVB dream season has come to an end  with extra icing on the cake! It’s been a ride with this team as FC Schüttorf 09 volleyball rises to the top.

Team FC09 in a final slide, giving thanks to the fans!

Winning the league championship in the 2011-2012 season our team advances into the Second Premier League, (2. Bundesliga) in Germany. At age 30 and my first year playing any international volleyball I am grateful for being able to play this year. It was indeed a battle training on and off the volleyball court growing as an athlete. I believed that this could happen…. but wow! Now it is over. We accomplished our goals this season, we did our jobs, had fun, worked hard as a team but mostly we believed. This hasn’t happened in many years for this program so it’s a great reward to help this team and the community. It paid to work my butt off, eat healthy, ice the knees, BELIEVE in myself, all to be a part of this moment in time.

It’s moments like this in life that I see why I pushed so hard mentally and physically through the dark valleys where it would have been easy to quit. Thank you to my family and friends and mentors around the world.
