2018 Olympics

meg biram in olympic sweater

You knew I was going to have to post my vintage Olympics sweater today and WEAR IT! Today kicks off the 2018 Olympics (even though the events actually started a few days ago). I was up until midnight watching the coverage last night and about slept through my early morning [solidcore] class today.

Watching these athletes makes my efforts at [solidcore] seem like a joke but hey, I’m trying!

If it wasn’t already obvious, I am completely OBSESSED with the Olympics. I will be watching EVERY NIGHT. I love seeing the BEST athletes in the world compete against each other. I mean just the level of dedication these people have is insane. Some of the events are odd, and really dangerous, but there are so many amazing stories and I can’t wait to watch the games unfold.

I’m wearing my vintage Montréal sweater (found it on eBay!), but of course I’m cheering for the USA. I’m not from Canada, I just love vintage Olympics gear.

I can’t get this part of Kanye’s Stronger out of my head:

Work it, make it, do it,
Makes us harder, better, faster, stronger!

That that don’t kill me
Can only make me stronger

The Olympics makes me think of certain characteristics that admire in athletes that I want to try to incorporate more in my own life.

Dedication.

Pushing myself harder, farther than I think I can.

Practice, practice, practice. 

Having big dreams and goals.

Focus.

It goes along with my February mantra — GET UNCOMFORTABLE.

I’m hoping to go to the Olympics someday. Bucket list! Tokyo, Beijing, Paris…

Do you love the Olympics? Do the Olympics make you have any certain thoughts or feelings?
