I get asked often. Where did you come from?
And they are not asking, where I was born either. But more, how had I, at 44 represented Canada at the 2010 Olympics when I had previously had so little international experience and no major titles to my name.
As I write this blog Team Bernard has just finished up their 3rd event this season.
It began with a win in our small Calgary Curling Club opener on Sept 10th (I had just flown in two days prior, from a two week African safari so I was a bit jet lagged).
I flew to Toronto a few months back – out from Calgary at 5 pm and back home the next day at 3pm. Quick trip, for a great cause. It was the Microsoft Xbox launch M4M (Mission for Miracles) event.
This is the final post of a three part series, “The Lessons of the Medal“. Sport teaches so many lessons that can be used in everyday life – its understanding those lessons and applying them to your daily life that is the difficult part.
