In honor of the winter Olympics starting tonight, I wanted to pose this question. What event did you want to participate in when you were a kid? It can be either a summer or winter event. This is all in fun.
I remember watching the Olympics when I was a kid. I think there was probably more than one event I wanted to participate in. I found all the athletes so impressive; still do actually. They're all so young, fit and beautiful. The pride in their faces when they won a medal. Witnessing the pain of their defeat if they lost and didn't medal.
The one event I remember thinking would be fun to participate in was the bobsled. For it to be the thrill filled ride it looks to be, I would have to be the person in front. As a kid, I thought it would be the ultimate sled ride. Like your neighborhood sled ride on steroids.
So, what event did you want to be a part of? What do you remember thinking, 'I want to do that'? Enjoy the Olympics and I hope it brings back pleasant memories.
