I just love the Olympics. I have ever since the first ones I can remember, which were the 1994 Lillehammer Games. The pageantry, the storylines, the sports one rarely sees except through the every-four-year window.
Until a few weeks ago, I hadn’t allowed myself to get excited about the upcoming Summer Olympics, trying to be realistic about losing them as we did last year. But when various Olympic Trials kept going forward and I realized the Games were only a few weeks away, I decided it was okay to start believing they would actually happen.
Now we’re only a few days away from the start of Tokyo 2020. These Olympics will be decidedly different, and I realize there are a lot of different opinions about them. But I can’t help but be excited. The Summer Olympics are especially meaningful to me, and I’ll be sharing about that here in a week or so.
Are you excited about the Olympics? Do you have any Olympic traditions? Let me know in the comments.
