Vancouver 2010

February 19 2010

So we're one week into the 2010 Winter Olympics and I have to say that so far, it has been such an awesome experience!  George and I are lucky enough to live in Vancouver and I have been out almost every day just walking around trying to absorb as much of this Olympic experience as I possibly can! The weather has been absolutely beautiful, the streets are packed with happy, enthusiastic fans from all over the world and the feeling of Canadian patriotism is the highest that I have ever felt in my entire life!

I've watched the Olympics in the past and have always been a big sports fan but knowing that all these athletes are competing at such a high level right in my own back yard is just so awesome!  I've found myself glued to the t.v. this past week watching sports that I normally wouldn't watch like long and short track speed skating, biathlon, down hill skiing and the skeleton and I am blown away by the concentration, dedication and all out effort that each athlete puts in to their performance no matter what sport they are competing in.

I'm not going to lie.. I wasn't so sure about these Olympics before they got to town but I have to admit that I've now totally jumped on the Vancouver 2010 bandwagon and will be celebrating and enjoying the games as much as I can for the next ten days!
