You've got mail.

So I thought I would try something out.....

Who wants a postcard from the village?

Now, I know I could be getting myself into something crazy because I am really not sure how many people are actually reading this. Which is why I am putting a time limit on this. According to my world clock it is 6:15am in California on Sunday, August 3. Here in China it is 9:15pm. We practice tomorrow morning one more time before we HEAD TO THE VILLAGE!!! (Can you sense my excitement?) Once we get to the village I will try and check my blog. If you want to receive a postcard from me, from the village, just leave your address in a comment at the bottom of this post. We have the day after that off, giving us time to explore the Village. At which point I will get postcards. But if your comment comes too late....than the window for mail will have closed, because I will need to simply concentrate on competing after that.

Comment before the wee hours on Monday, August 4th = snail mail from the Olympic Village.

Thank you all for reading my blog! The time has now run out. All the comments posted thus far should look out for a post card in the mail soon!
Again, thanks for the support and may you enjoy all the future stories!

HI Petie,
Greeting from Nor Cal. I want a postcard!!! Have the time of your life and give 110% all the time. I am so proud of you. Remember those days at Cal when I would always get mad at you because you never wanted to shoot. I always new you were a special talent. I heard you were coaching at Miramonte. Do you want to be a Diablo Coach when you get back. I would absolutely love to have you. Kelly's team won JO's. 16/unders. Take care and wish everyone the best.
