I got so wrapped up in that excitement that I’ve been going to classes for over a month now and some of my fellow participants who follow the blog reminded me that I hadn’t written anything in a REALLY long time (thanks guys!).

It is my first ABC since the season in the Bethlehem YMCA D-league, so I was really curious to see how I fared.
