The Olympics haven't even started yet and I already feel like I am going full throttle. I have been pretty much living in the gym and when I am not there....I have been at Olympic training sessions or trying to get some rest in. I can't believe how things are transforming on a daily basis! There are Olympic rings and Vancouver 2010 overlay EVERYWHERE. The lights in the trees have all been lights mean entrances and exits to the village and white lights light up the rest of the trees. Mass 24hour transit starts tomorrow! There are broadcast platforms that have been erected all over town which will be live broadcast points for the thousands of media...plug and go! The Whistler Sliding Centre is virtually unrecognizable! Wow! I am really getting pretty excited for it all. It is so hard to imagine that in 12 short days the whole world is going to be watching our little town!
