Update from Nationals – July 27

Hey Blog Followers!

                Arizona is actually turning out to be quite a beautiful state and the heat is not living up to all of the expectations that I had… THANKFULLY! Yesterday we practiced from six to eight and got to watch a stunning desert sunset with gorgeous streaks of pink and orange framing the rugged Arizona terrain. Thankfully it was only in the 90’s and there was a pleasant breeze so it was not miserable. Hot and sweaty we jumped in the cars and headed to a delightful dinner at Macaroni Grill. Carb loading commenced as well as drawing crazy self-portraits on their table cloths and chugging water. Got to stay hydrated! We finished up there around ten and headed back to the hotel. At which point it was 101 degrees! Crazy, huh!? After showering (Well at least most of us) we hit the sack. Let me tell you… I slept like a rock!

                Earlier today we had breakfast in the chaperones room and spent the remainder of the morning just relaxing in our HUGE hotel rooms. Then we reconvened for an epic game of “catch-phrase” and some snacks. Now we continue to lay low while beginning to mentally prepare for tonight’s match. We will be facing PDA Tsunami from New Jersey at eight o’clock. It is extremely exciting and I am anticipating a competitive game! I’ll let you know how it goes!

Until then, stay cool… we actually aren’t too bad ourselves! AZ temperature is 102 degrees at 2:27 p.m. 🙂 AWESOME!
