Our Winter Games - "Radiant, jubilant, spontaneous, peaceful" *

The Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics
There was also warmth, acceptance, energy,
and enthusiasm from athletes and visitors alike...
plus a good measure of inspiraton for all who would aspire to make every moment count!

Just makes you want to run, paddle,
and do everything else you love to do,
with just a little extra passion...
and I think that's a good thing!


* John Furlong, CEO, The Vancouver Organizing Committee, closing remarks.


  1. I don't think you can put a price on "inspiration" - and that may be rational enough for the Games. I think we can assume that not only have many youth been inspired to push their limits, but others too, in many aspects of life. I have.


  2. Thanks Jarv. I heard the advice, years ago, that whatever distance you can run, you can double it. That's probably the case for a lot of the "limits" we accept.
