Thanks, Mom

A new commercial for  P&G, an Olympic sponsor:
When I was younger, I was obsessed with the idea that I would become an Olympic gymnast, despite being over a foot too tall and not all that great at gymnastics. My parents didn't discourage it. My Mom even built a little balance beam in our backyard. When I gave up that madness, Mom took me to whatever sport struck my fancy next. Before I obsessed over gymnastics, there was T-ball and ballet. After gymnastics, I delved into soccer and basketball, before finally finding cross country and track. In high school, my sister and I competed on different teams (meaning twice as many meets, twice as much driving, twice as many pasta parties), and my parents still managed to make it to all our races. Now, my parents continue to come to my marathons and every race of any distance they can make it to.

We're not all Olympians, but our moms still put in Olympic worthy effort. Thanks to all the moms for supporting our dreams, now matter how crazy, or how much they change.

Love you, Mom.

Dream big,
