My cousin Linda is going to be in the Olympics! Okay, now that I have your attention, let me more clear. Linda will be one of the people carrying the Olympic Torch in the 2010 Olympics in Canada! Linda, a native New Yorker, moved to Calgary a while back to help out with her husband's family. Greg is a great guy and a native Canadian. I am so proud of her! This is such a cool thing to be involved in. She will be running in memory of her grandparents who also had Canadian roots. I admire her for many reason, she's beautiful, wicked smart, accomplished and has tons of spunk! On top of all that, she's my age (you know, um, 29?), and she has enough energy to not only run, but run with the Olympic Torch in Canada! And....Canada is WAY cold! If I walk out to get the mail, that's a lot. Although I do that in the cold and snow occasionally. Sometimes I even walk a little fast. Woo-hoo...go me! (not!)
Congratulations Linda - I am so proud of you!
