I was not built for land. Trust me. When I was little and my parents put me in AYSO, I spent most of my time sitting in the middle of the field picking flowers for my hair or making flutes out of grass. Then, on the rare occasion that I would run after the ball, it was normally followed by a mouthful of grass after I tripped, hard! My dad used to joke that I was like a bull in a China shop.

I used to be an athlete. Like a big time, workout 6 hours a day, travel the world athlete. I went to UC Berkeley on a full ride water polo scholarship, was a starter in the Junior World Championships and a member of the Senior National Team. I worked out harder than anyone I know, swam miles per day, lifted more than men on the Berkeley basketball team (seriously), and was so darn proud of my body and the shape that I was in.
