Arrival in Beijing

I arrived today in Beijing. Look for some email updates soon.

Kadena Training

Sorry for the delay in posting... These past 10 days have truly flown by. I cannot tell you how grateful we all are to the folks here at Kadena Air Force Base for having us here. There is not a single complaint I can think of. We were fed extremely well, our rooms were excellent, we have become acclimated to the weather and timezone and most of all we have all made friends and connections with our sponsor families and many other individuals affiliated with the military.

Internet & TV Coverage of the Paralympic Games!!!!!

Press release from the IPC:
Bonn, Germany - Universal Sports, a multiplatform destination for amateur sports programming throughout the year which is co-owned by NBC Universal and InterMedia Partners, the Beijing 2008 Organizing Committee (BOCOG) and the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) announced today an agreement to provide the first-ever multiplatform broadcast coverage of the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games, presented by GE in the United States.

Kadena Air Force Base - Day 1 & Day 2

As promised-- here is my "daily" update from Japan. We arrived safe and sound into Kadena Air Force Base in Okinawa, Japan. Now I have had two full days on the base and have all kinds of little things to report from here in mini-America.

T Minus 40 Hours and Counting...

The time is almost here for my departure to Colorado Springs for Team Processing before heading to Japan (for a training camp) and then on to Beijing! I cannot believe it is actually here.

Going to the Paralympics is something I have always dreamed about...for as long as I can remember. It is something that has always been on my horizon for a while, whether it was for skiing or for track, but the timing was just never right because of injuries, surgeries, life etc. The time is now, and I can't wait!

Chicago 2016

I recently attended an event in Chicago in support of the 2016 bid. Chicago is a finalist right now in the selection process for the 2016 Olympics and Paralympics. The other finalists are Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo and Madrid. At the event, I had the opportunity to meet many current and former Olympians and Paralympians. Prior to the evening show, I spent some time talking with Dominique Moceanu, Olympic gold medalists in gymnastics. It was great to exchange stories and hear about everything she has been up to lately.
