Earlier this month, we went to the Big Event in Eugene where the athletes were chosen for the Big Event in Brazil. We cannot use the name of the Big Event in Brazil because we might get sued by the US Big Event Committee (USOC).
We have reached the final day here in Eugene...and the whole experience has been quite comparable to that of a 10-day wedding. For real! Reuniting with old friends. Connecting with new. Moments of tears. Blissful triumphs. Heartbreaking near misses. Non-stop dancing. The roller coaster of emotions has been exhausting and incredibly exhilarating.
