Olympic Thoughts

Mara Abbott.

I've spent a lot of time with this young woman over this past decade at RACE and at the RallySport pool. We talk about swimming and bike racing (sometimes), but mostly we talk about her passion to make the world and her beloved Boulder a better place.

So, let's not talk about how close she came at the Olympics. Honestly, she probably doesn't want to talk about it at all (she would rather talk about recycling and politics, you know...important stuff)

Instead, lets talk about how she made smart choices and challenged her fears on a hugely terrifying descent and gave it EVERYTHING through the last 8k. How she gave her heart and soul through the finish like she has done with everything in her life.

For what it is worth, I am proud of you Mara. Incredibly so. So are the young swimmers at RACE, all of RallySport and all of your hometown of Boulder.
