It hit me when I was sitting at the airport waiting to board my flight. I was sitting there, and Ice Dancers Cathy and Chris Reed who represent Japan walk right past me and sit down. Two Olympians...right there! They had their team coats on with matching Team Japan bags in tow and it just hit me, "I'm on my way to the Olympics! Oh wow!"
This past week at work everyone has asked me, "How can you even sit still? Aren't you excited?" Well...it was very hard to sit still and yes I was excited but I wanted to keep it all contained until I arrived in Vancouver and began blogging. I wanted the excitement and anticipation I have for this once in a lifetime event to come out in my blogging.
I can't contain my excitement any more...I'm at the Olympics...it has really set in that I'm here. I've looked out my hotel window several times just to confirm to myself, "That really is Vancouver out there?" I'm smilng from ear to ear and this grin probably won't leave my face for the next year.
I'm in Vancouver and I'm ready to go...let the blogging begin!
