The Karate Update: Hamstrung

Well, it was bound to happen.

Getting back into Karate has been awesome.  My kids are really digging it and have already advanced to white belt/green stripe.  I couldn’t be more proud.

The other guys from way-back-when and I are having a great time reminiscing about old times.  The other night, Kevin, one of the nicest bad-ass black belts you’ll ever meet, brought in some old newspaper clippings of us from 1985-1988.  We were in the paper more than I remembered it seems.

I was very impressed with the trophies (I am not sure where all of mine went?), but mostly I was impressed at how in shape I was.   If I knew back then how good I looked, I would have been impossible to be around.  Tan, fit, able to kick your butt.  It was so awesome to see myself at my best physically!!!

So what did I do to follow that awesome  feeling up?  Pulled a hamstring.  POP!  RIP!  OUCH!

Now, hamstrung with memories of rolling on the floor in pain, I look forward to getting back out there and creating some new memories with my kids.   Hopefully they won’t take 24 years to realize how awesome they are.
