Long before I ever skied I played soccer and although my days of soccer are few and far between now but every summer co-ed soccer kicks off in Ketchum.

I have yet to miss a summer much to the dismay of many who know me. Co-ed league is especially dangerous simply because of the 100% varying degrees of skill level. Not to mention the fact that men in their 30-somethings hate being dribbled around by a girl in her 20-somethings or even worse, having the ball take from them. I have had my fair share of elbows to the head, unsafe slide-tackles, and shoves to the pavement yet I have not been seriously injured playing soccer since the 8th grade. I suppose it was my turn for a wake up call.
