I'm back...

After taking the summer off from blogging I am finally back.  I have so much to share about my summer from what I did all summer to new fashion finds.  But for the next 16 days I will be blogging about World Championships.

I took most of the summer off from USA Volleyball trying to get my knee and body in better shape to make a run for the 2012 Olympics.  About 2 months ago I got back in the gym with the USA Team and competed my way back onto the roster.  Now after a long and hard summer I am here in Japan with the team for my first World Championships.  I know it is hard to believe that it is my first...but it is.  It was the only big tournament I was missing on my resume, and I am so happy to be here helping the team.

We traveled to Japan on the 21st of October to get acclimated and train for a week before the tournament started.  We had a great training week in Shinga the home of the Japanese club team Toray Arrows.  The organization was so wonderful to host us in their city and gym for 6 days.  Thank you to the Toray Arrows.

After a 5 hours bus ride we arrived in Matsumoto on Wednesday.  Had a short practice on Thursday in the competition gym, watched a good amount of video, and rested up for today.  We took the court today against Thailand for our first game.  After a slow start we pulled out a 3-1 win.  World Championships is a very long and difficult tournament.  A win is a win and that's all that matters.  Now it's time to look ahead to Croatia tomorrow.

Most of the games are being streamed online.  Problem is the site changes but I will try to update you as soon as I know.  You can always follow the tournament on for all the results, stats, and pictures.

Talk to you tomorrow.
