London Fever

I got chills! They're multiplying and I'm losing control. 'Cause the power you're supplying...it's eletricfying! You're the one that I want!

I know some of you know where those lyrics come from. They come from the movie 'Grease' when Sandy and Danny finally confess their love to each other.

That's how I feel about the 2012 Olympics. Every time I see NBC commercials I get chills all over my body. I get this feeling from deep within that is so powerful it causes tears to form in my eyes. I can't shake it!

My first Olympic team my mindset was "let's see what I can do". This time I am going for it, the one thing that every athlete dreams of, I'm going for GOLD! There can't be a greater feeling than standing on top of the podium with the gold medal around your neck and the national anthem playing in the background! Being a track and field athlete, what greater honor is there?

In everything I do I hold that picture in my mind. I have my eyes fixed on the prize. For some people it may be hard to see. They may even ask if it's a tangible goal. Yes it is! If you shoot for the moon the least you will do is land amongst the stars, right? Plus, I know with all of my heart I can do all things through Christ (Philippians 4:13) !

Faith, patience, hard work, and consistency can take you far. Whatever you want to do, like good old Nike says, "JUST DO IT"!

Yours truly,
Michelle Carter

Since I figure you're getting ALL the love right now (so much so I'm hearing about it from people I'd never expect) I figured something as mundane as a text or a tweet just wouldn't cut it.

So congratulations on a job well done this weekend. And hurry up and update this blog I awesomely named!
