Congratulations. But only 300 m? I thought you'd get to carry it further than that. Well, enjoy it regardless.

I'm so happy for you Alex. My first real memories of the Olympics were the ones held in Calgary, when I was a very young girl. I remember watching a young girl who had been selected to light the Olympic Flame at the Stadium and how proud she looked. It's always been a dream of mine.... I wish I could come cheer you on in person, but I live too far (Ottawa), but I will send you lots of positive energy and really look forward to seeing the pictures. Happy Hallowe'en :)
