Blast from the Past

I just happened to be cruising around facebook and came across this picture that was on my college page. I went to a pretty small school in central PA - Susquehanna University. It was definitely a fun time where I met friends I will have forever. One of my favorite college memories was my 4 years playing soccer! Oh and by the way - this is my 100th post! WHOA!

I would love to hear about the sport(s) you played in college and/or high school?

I played soccer, basketball and tennis in high school. Soccer in college for four years and softball for one year. My friend Laura and I were bored after always playing sports in high school, so we walked on to the softball team freshman year and made it. We had a blast, but not enough to play again sophomore year. Especially because our spring break was taken away due to a softball tournament. :)

I played soccer when I was little and was on a couple of comp teams. When I got to High School I became a cheerleader and that took over my life so I couldn't be involved in anything else. Sadly in college I became a fat lazy bum who did nothing. So sad.

YEAH! You are so hardcore!
I had an illness that kept me from enjoying sports in HS and college, BUT when I was in elementary and middle school, I was all over soccer, softball, and baseball (w/ my bro in the backyard)!

I played soccer, basketball and softball in High School and soccer in college. I loved being active and playing.

Hey Lauren! I haven't commented on your blog in a while - I'm so sorry! I promise to be a better commenter from now on!

Oh, and I wanted to say Congrats on completing the Baltimore Marathon! I know it was a while ago but I can't remember if I commented on that post or not!

Have a great night!

I played ultimate frisbee :) I was on a team of crazy hippies who were a blast. We weren't good, but we were tall, so we won almost all of our games because we could jump higher than the competition :)

That Indian dessert looks interesting. I was in India for about a month and they had sweet shops with loads of different exotic treats. They were usually too sweet for my taste, but it was fun to see the variety. I think most of them are just milk/sugar/butter concoctions.

Great pic!
I ran track and cheered in high school. In college, I was in a sorority and we pretty much just drank. :) Minimal physical activity going on. Hence, the freshman 20 that I gained.
