Saturday I was running a grappling tourney yesterday. Doing some reffing, some admin, some public relations. It was very successful, plenty of people. No one got hurt. There was some great matches and the overall atmosphere was very friendly, and fun.
I had to leave early to play cricket, but as I got ready to leave I noticed it was raining very hard. So I called the captain and asked if the game was washed out, and he said it was. Now as I wrote on Sunday I had been dealing with a bit of depression, and this really bummed me out. I love competition, and it helps me deal with things.
So I did the most logical thing...
I entered the absolute division (any weight classe any experience level, usually the toughest division) of the tourney. But I hadn't trained seriously in four months. I am not in grappling shape at all.
Well I had fun, won a few matches, and most of all got to get that adrenaline happening. I really feel much better. Man, if they sold adrenaline at McDonalds, I might have to go back after ten years. :)
