olympics junkie

I worked at the Salt Lake City Olympic winter games in 2002, and some have said that’s why I’m a junkie. It’s not.

As I sit here watching the stories of the athletes and their families, I am in awe, inspired, and crazy excited that 2014 in Sochi kicks off tomorrow night. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a huge Olympics fan.


If you are wondering where I am over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be in from of the TV, glued to NBC watching the best of the best athletes in the world. Bonus, a little boy now all grown up, from right down the road (by that I mean literally a mile down the road from my parents house in little ol’ Shaftsbury, VT) Andy Newell– will be competing for gold in Sochi! Hello adding to my total junkie-can’t-tear-me-away-hoo-rah-for-the-Olympics feelings!

Here’s to dreaming about everything that’s possible, and knowing that if you work hard- you really can get there.

What are you determined to be today?
