Motivated to be motivated

The Coach's Kid Hates Baseball

Two weeks ago, my son started tee ball for the first time. I don't know which of us were more excited. He wore his mitt around the house for days beforehand, slapping a baseball in and out of it, telling people he's now a "real baseball player". I was excited to see him play his first sport! It was the sweet part of what most of us refer to as bitter-sweet as we watch them grow up. Seeing one of my kids so proud of themselves as they accomplish or learn something new is pretty incredible, and I could tell this would be one of those things....more

It's not easy, but still I run

I have to face it - I'm not a natural runner. I've been doing it for years without getting good at it. Ten years ago I'd thunder along the pavement, red in the face and pouring with perspiration.

I'm lovin' my ass

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with my ass for 39 years (the first ten years, I only paid attention if it was covered with shorts under my dress as I swung around the monkey bars). The Green family is known for their butts and hands. Every time a new baby boy is born we are marveling over his huge mitts, “Uh-huh, just like grandpa’s....more
