It has taken me almost 50 years to realize a very basic concept: I should be grateful for my body and not despise it. Yet there are times like the beginning of summer and swimsuit season where I struggle for rationality. My body has, after all, carried me around faithfully for almost half a century. It has fought off infections, borne me up through fatigue, stress and trials. It has brought four healthy boys into the world and nursed them with vital nutrition, and it has supported me as I faced the challenges of being a working mom. Like most women, I understand that hating my body isn't right.

I have never understood why there aren't more big goalies in college lacrosse. No, I'm not talking about the blobs that eat up space and can block out the sun because they consume multiple cheeseburgers. I'm referring to more of a finesse game where the goalie has size and decent quickness, but more importantly fast hands and good positioning. Loyola Maryland's Jack Runkel comes to mind.
