Welcome to Buffaloes Summer Break where catches up with Colorado student-athletes and coaching staff members throughout the summer "off season."

Today's installment comes from Lizzy Herzl, a junior defender for the soccer team. A native of Littleton, Colo., Herzl played 15 games, starting nine, as a stopper on the Buffaloes back row as a sophomore. Her one career goal, in 2010 as a freshman, proved to be one of the most memorable in team history as her overtime blast defeated No. 10 UCLA, 1-0, in the Omni Hotels Classic.

What is your favorite summer time activity?
Hiking or barbecuing!

Favorite vacation destination and why?
Germany/Europe, because of the lifestyle and history. And German pretzels!

What was your first summer job?

What was your most memorable summer job experience?
Once I heated up a hardboiled egg for the kids and it exploded and broke their mom’s plate literally into pieces, it was very unexpected!

What is the most important activity you engage in during the summer months that helps prepare you for the next season?
Running and eating right.

If they offered a class in _____________ at Colorado during the summer I would surely get an A+
Hip rehab

What is your favorite moment here at Colorado so far?
Definitely when Ripple opened! And beating UCLA and Texas A&M my freshman year.

The thing that surprised you the most about the move from the Big 12 to the Pac-12 Conferences is:
Washington is less rainy than I had imagined.

Best advice for youth that are beginning to compete in athletics.
Stick with it, especially during the tough times and always make sure to play with heart!

If you could play a single game/event for a CU team that is not your sport, which would it be and why?
I would love to be a super fast skier and race with them!

If you could bring one famous person to Colorado for a day-long tour, who would it be, and what would you do with them?
Marcus Luttrell (Author of Lone Survivor) I would ask him to compare our workouts with that of the navy SEALS. I think ours wouldn’t seem too bad after that!
