Hey everyone! I had told so many people all summer I would be starting this blog to keep everyone in the loop with my deaflympic experience. As you all know, I procrasinated until two days before I leave for this amazing adventure. The biggest challenge I had with this blog was coming up with a catchy name. I decided to go with chasing the dream because it describes the adventures I have spent years dreaming and now I have the chance to make it a reality. However, blue bullet is a combination of my favorite color and the first roller coaster I rode: the silver bullet.
I will be in Taiwan to compete in the Deaflympics in the sport of soccer or as the international world likes to say: football. The games start on the 5th of September and go until the 15th. The best way to keep track of the games are through these websites:
the main US deaflympic site: http://www.usdeaflympics.org/
for a live feed of the games: http://www.deaflympics.tv/
for the schedule: http://english.2009deaflympics.org/ezfiles/27/1027/img/11/T2009-TCS-Football-200908172310.pdf
I encourage you all to keep track of it all. I'm #13, if you want to try to find me on the live feed. It is a very exciting time for me. I have been training for this event for two years. The girls on the team are absolutely amazing and I cannot imagine a much stronger team without each individual. Keep us in mind while you go about in your day. Every thought and prayer makes a difference.
I will do my best to keep you all updated while I am in Taiwan with the team. GO USA!
