Completing the pursuit race yesterday brought me halfway through my racing at the 2010 Olympic Games. It's hard to believe that there are only two races left for me here in Vancouver, but I am very pleased with my results so far. Leaving no regrets behind is sometimes a very big challenge in big races like this, and so far I feel I am doing a good job.

Not only was Tuesday's pursuit my first Olympic pursuit race, but it was also my first ever international pursuit. I had fantastic shooting with only 2 penalties, and though I was hoping to have a better result, it was a great experience for me. With such good shooting in the last couple races, I am really looking forward to the Individual race tomorrow. The sunshine today and promises of more to come certainly aren't hurting my outlook either!

Inspirational Rocks are tucked away all around the village, it's fun (and inspiring) to try and find all of them!

Congratulations! I was so excited when I check the results and saw that you had the top american finish! Amazing! You should be very proud of yourself. I have told all my friends about you and they think its so cool that I know someone in the Olympics! Congrats on your results so far, and good luck in the relay. By the way-how does it feel to accomplish your goal of top 30? (you got 34th in the individual today, I'd consider that close enough!)

Your Friend,

Fantastic blog. Every winter olympics that comes along I get inspired to try biathlon, but never seem to get around to it. I think that is about to change.
