The Olympic Torch Run!

olympic-rings-Vancouver 2010 It’s coming!  Tomorrow is the day!  Tomorrow, Christmas Eve Day, the Olympic Torch for Vancouver 2010 with be passing by only 10 minutes from our home.  I am pretty excited to be part of this historic event, and look forward to getting pictures of course too!  The run through Forest, just after noon tomorrow, is only from 12:49 to 12:57, which makes you wonder, how do they know this exactly?   Well, taking a look at the map you will see it is not exactly a straight line – the run is extremely commercialized, passing by RBC banks, and is only run on foot for short clips, then it’s back in the shuttle, and drove to the next location.  At first I thought – well that’s cheating, but then, you know, if this wasn’t done this way – then what would the chances be that we would actually get to be part of it without traveling a huge distance on Christmas Eve day – which just wouldn’t have happened.  If you would like to see if the Olympic Torch 2010 is coming to your area, just take a look at and check out the map.  Looking forward to seeing so many people out for the event tomorrow!
