Chelsea Challenge 2008 is this coming weekend! It’s hard to believe this is my seventh challenge.

This year I am captaining Purple Rain in the developmental division. The team is a good mix of people I’ve played with, people I’ve played against and a couple people I just don’t know. We’ve got a goalie I know well (from the Tigers) and I get to play with my hockey boyfriend Mike, which is always fun. We’ll see how we do when we play our first tournament game Friday night at 9:20. Then we play twice on Saturday and hopefully we’ll be playing twice on Sunday too.

If all goes well, by noon on Sunday we’ll have clinched a medal. I’ve medaled in the Challenge four of six times (two gold, one silver, one bronze) and last year was a gold. Regardless of outcome though, it will be a super fun weekend!
