I may have mentioned how excited I am that the Olympics are in London next year. Well I never managed to get tickets and am now resorting to entering all the competitions I see.
This morning I received a mysterious package in the post…
…I pulled the tab slowly to see the man running across the black circle and to find…
How awesome is that?! Very cool.
I was nominated through the Coca Cola Future Flames scheme, and am very (very) pleased to have been picked. I am totally excited about it! I have to fill in a form and send off ID etc now, but the place is mine as long as I accept it on time. I wonder what the “uniform” is like?!
The small print on the pack says I should wear my badge with pride and tell everyone about this (although the email said not to talk to local press). I am totally honoured to have been chosen. I know there are 100s of people doing it, I also know that 100s of very worthy nominations did not get picked – I have absolutely no idea why I’m on the list over some other people, I kind of feel guilty in some senses but also very proud. I want to show people that life is indeed all about the journey (my mantra) and to make the best of every moment I have been given – and with the passing of my Nan on Tuesday this nudge couldn’t have come at a better time (although my emotions are obviously quite mixed). Bring it on!
All I know so far is I will be carrying the Olympic Flame somewhere between Grimsby and Lincoln on Wednesday 27th June, and should find out more nearer the time. I’ll let you know 🙂
In the mean time I guess I’d better start running again – don’t wanna get all out of breath on my few metres as a Torchbearer!
