The time has come for THE announcement.
I thought about doing this on Twitter or Facebook last week, but after a quick thought, I figured MHB would be the best platform to announce my retirement from competitive Ultimate Frisbee.
After all the time I spent playing Ultimate, I thought it would be hard to walk away. Or maybe that I just wouldn’t know when to officially step away from the game. But it’s actually one of the easiest decisions I’ve made. Ever.
I don’t really have the urge to play anymore. And I don’t miss playing. Therefore, it was time to make my retirement from any competitive play known.
Thanks to everyone who made Columbia Ultimate happen on a yearly basis from 2004 to 2014. It was a blast.
I’ll always remember the people who played and the great plays they made (the ones I actually witnessed anyway) for Columbia Ultimate.
I know CU’s reputation, and probably my ultimate reputation, wasn’t the best or most respected in and around Lancaster County. But I believe the league had a positive impact for many local players. And I hope CU provided an outlet for any who were seeking one. From meeting players, to keeping in shape, or a place to satisfy one’s competitive fire.
