Keyokah Mars Garrick: The Anticipation of Playing in France
In the days leading up to our France trip we had two last days of practice. It was definitely a time when your mind is elsewhere; thinking of what you need to still buy and pack, getting anxious for the trip itself, and then back to the practice you’re in the middle of. Getting through the last two days was exciting knowing what was to come but also demanding of our focus and execution to not just have a good practice but a great one.
As the France trip came near it was almost unbelievable. We know what we’ve been preparing for but the thought of going to play in France is a little surreal. The part that will make the entire trip a little more concrete will be getting on that plane and flying over to Europe for the next six hours!
