Olympics 2.2

We finally got on the track today! This is the world stage, the course builders didn’t cheap out, and it shows! The track is big and fast! We have two days off now, for the boarders to have their fun (and get some medals!) and then the skiers hit the track again with two days of training followed by the men then the women’s race day!

Free skiing with Jenny, from Australia, and we almost got seriously injured from a sneaky cat driver pummeling through the tunnel!

I took a solo trip to get some alone time and headed to the coast for an evening! I hung out with my buds on the women’s hockey team. I had so much fun checking out the coastal village, and watching the men’s hockey game!

We went free skiing up at the top of the mountain. It was magnificent. This mountain is massive!

I ended my day today with a workout, a few ice baths and some treatments. I was outside in the sunshine and got asked from the Jamaican bobsled team for a picture! A beauty day it was!

About

My first name is Alice. I'm called by my middle name, Georgia. I grew up getting beat up by my 3 older brothers Christian, Boyd and Julian. They rock. I love pretty much every sport there is, except maybe rhythmic gymnastics. I wonder who invented that one? Cooking is a fun pastime on a rainy day. The feeling of being on the brink of disaster, going as fast as possible, is indescribable. And I'm not talking about driving a car. It feels awesome being completely and utterly exhausted after giving 110% during a workout. I tell my mother everything (almost)... Examining snowflakes fall onto my jacket while on the chair lift could keep me bewildered for hours(haha, ok maybe not HOURS). I'm pretty sure I make myself laugh too often. Listening to music with my headphones keeps me sane. Making someone smile is contagious. Finishing a knitting project, such as a wicked awesome headband, is totally satisfying. I love being Canadian and having people laugh after I say the words "eh" and "toque". And it happens often. Having friends around the globe is a really cool thing. Experiencing different cultures is eye opening. Traveling all over the world is the best thing, but there is nothing like flying into Vancouver, eating a home cooked meal with my family, and falling asleep in my own bed.
