"Don't put an age limit on your dreams" Dara Torres U.S. Olympic Swimmer -- age 41

It is funny how the Olympics seem to be bringing out the sports fan in me! Tonight I recorded the evening events and after getting home from Chuck E. Cheese and getting all the kids to bed I have proceeded to stay up until 1 a.m. to watch them. I mean really, when did i become a hard-core marathon fan? Never in my life had I watched someone run twenty-six miles until today. And swimming...who knew it was so exciting! I love that Dara Torres, who is 41 is out there winning medals! YOU GO GIRL!!! Don't even get me started on the beach volleyball! I actually got teary eyed when people were on the medal podium! Now it is almost 2 a.m. and I have adrenaline I didn't even know I had running through my own veins. I am going to regret this at church in the morning! :) But I just think it is funny that these sports don't really interest me any other time, but every four years buddy watch out.....I will be right there cheering with the best of them! I sure wish I had gotten an invite to Heidi Swapp's place in China to get to see the games first hand.......oh well maybe I will get to go in the next four years! Good night for now!

Right there with you - I've been staying up into the wee hours watching also. Don't care much for most of the summer sports any other time than the Olympics.

Ivana, your little ones are so precious!!!!

You need to come out to a crop sometime. You already know most of us (Terri, Deb, Tracie) and we would love to see you!
