Olympic Torch Run!
On Friday the Olympic torch arrived from Greece! It actually landed in Victoria (where I am) to start the torch run for the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver. I wasn't able to make it to the actual start of the relay (because I had swim practice!), but Simon Whitfield, 2000 Olympic Gold Medalist in Triathlon, from Canada, had the honors of starting it off, pretty darn cool!
I did manage to make it to one of the hand-off points along the route. I got to see an older Olympian run down the beach of Elk Lake and pass it off to the rowers, who then rowed across the lake with it. Fun Fun!
And speaking of the Olympics, Oct 31st was 1,000 days out from the start of the 2012 Olympics!!!
