active dates

Patrick and I LOVE active dates. We got really into tennis last summer. We love to explore the cities for little pockets of nature to hike. Sometimes we find a basketball court to shoot hoops. And don’t even get me started on volleyball, that’s my fave. Racquetball is another sport that’s a hoot. We are all about organized sport outings with friends: kickball, soccer, ultimate frisbee, football. The only run we have gone on together that I can mentally count as a date is the one that involved a smoothie from jamba juice at the halfway point. But that was fun 🙂 
Both Patrick and I can get highly competitive. The problem for me is, Patrick’s skill set tends to outweigh mine in basically every one of the above active activities. And the second problem for me is, Patrick has had experience dealing with his competitive nature in sports encounters, while I have had no such thing. You already know I have a dramatic stripe. I’m basically a nutcase out there getting really really into whatever sport we are doing, talking smack, the whole deal, getting frustrated, and always coming up short. And I don’t know, but I get the sense that that’s why he likes going with me so much. I put up enough of an effort for it to still be a game, and my competitive outbursts provide entertainment on the side. We are getting deeper into March which means there will be a resurgence of active dates again soon. PLUS we just upgraded our fitness membership to one where there are pools and courts of all kinds. I can’t wait to hit them up with my love.
