TRYOUT WISDOM FROM MOLLY BROWN’S LISA DOAN

In this short piece found on the blog of the top women’s team from Denver, Molly Brown, LisaDoan reminisces on her past tryouts from Molly Brown. Her tryout was so awful that she almost quit ultimate entirely, but she rebounded.

“My ego was battered, and I wanted to put as much distance between myself and the sport as possible. At the time, it felt like the biggest failure in the world and the end of my ultimate career. Failure seemed fatal.

I couldn’t give ultimate up, though.”

USE STRETCHING TIME WISELY
Cultivate a big awareness during warm ups – take in your teammates, the field, the weather conditions, but make yourself the center of it all for these few minutes. #RenFitness
