I attended the opening ceremonies last night which kicked off the Sochi 2014 Olympics. It was, and always will be one of the greatest experiences and honors to be able to walk in behind our countries flag. There was so much excitement and inspiration in that stadium. We unfortunately weren’t allowed to stay for the entire event as we had to take an early bus back to our village up in the mountains to get some sleep and prepare for our training the next day. My first race will most likely be the individual next friday the 14th so tune in for that. It starts at 7pm here in Sochi (9hrs ahead of EST and 11 ahead of MST). I will keep you posted if the schedule changes. Have a great weekend!!
