Olympic Trials

I was picking up my daughter from soccer camp this week, and there, practicing on the field right next to her was the women's national Canadian team prepping for their game here in SLC against the good ol' USA! The girls were mesmerized watching them practice. A few of the girls even got included in some video shots of the news coverage, and were subsequently convinced that they were going to be YouTube stars because of it.

Olympic Trials

I love strong female role models for my girls, and I loved observing all of these little elementary aged girls watching such accomplished athletes play on the field right next to them. I felt so lucky to live in such a great city where we've not only got access to great opportunities, but we've hosted the Olympic games, we're hosting trials, and we host all kinds of great sporting events across the board.

Womens 100-meter Olympic Trials Tie is Unfair, Unfounded

If you haven't heard, last weekend's Womens 100-meter Olympic Trial foot race ended in a dead tie for third place. Since only the top three women will go to the London Games, this is obviously a problem. Which third-place woman will compete: Allyson Felix or Jeneba Tarmoh?

What I've Learned From From My Dad

As my dad, he's taught me to expect great things. Not by telling me all of the time that I was destined for greatness, but by making me feel like I am smart, talented and capable of great things.
