There was no question in my mind that this time around I would indeed compete AND complete the challenge I signed on for.
I prepared, as I said I would:
I dealt with and overcame equipment malfunctions (as any true Olympian would):
I patiently waited until the opening ceremonies to officially cast on, because that's what the rules stated.
There was a bit of a restart that first weekend...see the wine glass? Not the only one enjoyed at the ceremony...just sayin'.
I devoted as much time, in all conditions possible, to the completion of my task, and I'm very pleased with my results...
