Olympic Dreams

I love the Olympics.  It's even better when you know someone who's competing.  And it is out of the world awesome when that person medals.

My childhood friend runs the mens 1500m, and last night he became the first American to win a medal in the 1500 for 44 years.  At the start of the last lap he looked to be out of medal contention, but he dug deep and crossed the finish line in second place!  Just thinking about it gives me the chills and I get all teary.

His come from behind victory sent my small town into a frenzy.  It's so amazing to see someone who's worked so hard for so many years succeed.

And here's the link to the replay of his race if you want to see it for yourself!

Congratulations Leo!
