K: is for Kickball

Keeping with the theme of getting exercise and playing like a kid, K: is for Kickball!  According to the World Adult Kickball Association (WAKA), Kickball is America's New Favorite Pastime. Over the past decade, these adult coed leagues have been popping up all over the United States, and more recently in Europe.  It is a great way to try something new, make new friends, and get active!

For those who may have lived a sheltered childhood, kickball follows rules very similar to baseball, with one team fielding nine positions on a diamond, and the other team coming up to kick (rather than bat).  There are three strikes and four balls, home runes, pop flies, the occasional pickle or stolen base, and five innings of suspenseful fun!  Such a blasty-blast, you don't even realize you're getting a workout in!  What's not to love about that?

    1. It's definitely a fun way to blow off some steam after a long day at work! And this challenge is going by FAST! It's hard for me to keep up sometimes. :)

  3. I played kickball up in Williamsburg one summer. I was a stand-in when my friend's team needed an extra girl player. One of the times it was POURING down rain, and there were giant mud puddles--it made it even more fun! We were soaked and muddy by the time we got to the bar for victory/consolatory drinks :)
