There are so many things that make me happy about hockey!

Johnjm22 mentioned how you feel "free" when you step out on the ice, and I totally agree! It's like you shed all your trappings of everyday life at that particular moment.

I love how I feel like a total badass in my gear.

Love how fast you can go on skates! Much better than running! It's exhilarating.

Love what it's done for my body - haven't looked this good in over 20 years, and it's even after having two kids! Best workout ever.

Love all the new friends I've made. Love hanging out drinking beer after the game half dressed in hockey gear.

Love seeing my progress every time I go out - but I think that's what is making it so darn addictive! If I don't get on the ice that week, I start going through withdrawals.

Love working with the kids and hearing them call me "Coach Beth". And love watching them improve their skills and how excited they get when something clicks for them.

There's more, but I will stop there! Fun thread!
