USA Strong at Sochi

Totally digging the Olympics and all the USA love out there.  Anyone pick up on Kate Hansen’s sweet moves yesterday? This girl seriously is amazing. Dancing, smiling, and just living up the fact that she is AT THE OLYMPICS!!!  I think our entire town is celebrating the fact that she is there, competing against some of the best in the world.  Even if they didn’t know her personally, they sure know of her charm.  I remember asking for her signature in my 7/8 yearbook, asking to have it when she turned famous.  That was pretty much a method for me to ask for someone’s signature probably because I was nervous.  Geek, I know.  But moving on.

I watched the first two runs yesterday from my handy dandy NBC Live app and made sure to capture the moment to share online. Following her races, article after article popped up over the internet, talking about her warm-up routine, her post-race interview, and just how much fun she makes the journey.  Hey, Kate even has her own BUZZFEED article?  Who would have thought someone could make so much of an impact?  After making the top ten yesterday, she takes on the final two rounds today.  You go girl!
