Welcome to another edition of Tuesday Topics. Today’s topic – Who are you rooting for in the Olympic Trials? The 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials will take place at the end of the month in Atlanta, GA. I’m a HUGE fan of the Olympics, especially the Summer Olympics, so I’m excited to watch this event.
Honestly I’m rooting for everyone, but these are a few athletes have some inspiring stories.
Megan’s story gave me goosebumps. Just reading about everything that she has had to overcome (20 skull fractures and a broken neck after a car accident) is truly a miracle. To not only survive the accident, but to come back to running after the extent of her injuries just blows my mind. Talk about a strong woman!

I just love everything about Des. She’s someone I could totally see myself hanging out with – maybe for a drink and great conversation. She’s so talented but also down to Earth which is a rare combo to find in any sport.
Lastly, I’m rooting for the awesome volunteers! I have a few friends that live in or near Atlanta and almost all of them are volunteering during the Trials. No doubt that this this will be both a fun, but stressful, event for them. I’m rooting for them to have fun, help tons of people and also meet as any athletes as possible during their volunteer time there 🙂
