11 days until #TO2015
Today marks ONE WEEK before we leave for the Pan Am Games!!! I think I can speak for the rest of the team when I say that we are very excited to compete in Toronto. These are our games and we are so happy to be celebrating our achievements, thus far, with our home country. It is going to be a very BIG, very exciting experience for us. Most of this team has not competed at a Pan Am Games, so we are going to soak in every minute of it.
I think it’s very fair to say that we have had our share of ups and downs this year. Like any team, we have been working out the kinks and have been striving to make our routines ones that the audience, and the judges, will remember… Over the last 175 days we have become so much more of a unit; One team that will compete together and win together. Whether that is a gold medal around our necks or the satisfaction of having a “best swim”, we will be smiling. I am proud to say that these girls are my family and every day they show me how strong they are. As a group, we can move mountains.
Heading to Toronto soon, I would like to say a quick thank you to everyone who has supported this journey. The coaches and athletes could not have made it this far without our tremendous staff of experts and of course the family and friends that keep us sane on a daily basis. Your listening ears…. well, reading minds, that keep this blog filled with viewers is an inspiration in itself. So THANK YOU!!
Now, go share!!! Share our journey with your friends and family! Throughout the Games we will be working with our photographer to keep this blog up-to-date; filling it with photos, videos and info from inside the Village, Competition Venue and all other amazing things, such as the Opening Ceremonies!! If you aren’t following this blog yet, now would be an exciting time to start!
