|ESPN.com: Summit||[Print without images]|
Adjust. That is what we learn to do as athletes. Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, but dancing in the rain. Ahhh, I love that quote.
Except, except when it starts raining on our beautiful, sunset dinner on the outdoor lawn here in Tucson. Seriously, we are in a desert!
Well, we adjusted beautifully by dancing on inside for dinner. Sage Steele and Laura Gentile opened the summit with the perfect combo of grace and humor (twice), followed by a panel of four amazing women: Michelle Kwan, Lisa Leslie, Jessica Mendoza and Summer Sanders.
What a treat to sit back, sip wine and take it all in. I love hearing smart, successful, athletic women talk about life, sports, balance and things that matter. I love hearing others share their insights on being a mom, friend, teammate and athlete.
I loved hearing:• that sleep deprivation is universal (and if you are not tired, add 500 things to your plate, slacker).
I loved hearing about all the positives sports offer regardless of age, size, sport or number of medals.
What a wonderful reminder of why...
Why we love to play, share, jump, dream, float and dance in the rain.
