DAY 3: I cannot decipher if I am tired from the all-nighter from the plane over here, or the hours we stayed awake listening to Pat play is guitar last night all squished in the kitchen together…or whether I am staying awake from excitement or a sugar overload of amazing pinballs (a little Irish candy-colorful sugar balls) I tried during training! The only thing I’m sure of is that my abs are sore from the excessive laughing.
Dublin arrival: I managed to grab my two huge bags off of the belt, SWEATING because obviously my bag was over the weight limit. I had to take out some of my favorite sweaters, only to stuff them into my carry-on. Of course, once the carry-on was zipped it had no chance of fitting in the overhead…so basically there was no choice but to layer them on myself. Then the eight of us stuffed ourselves in the “Prom Van” to our journey to Belfast.
Already I can tell this is going to be a great year- because this group will make it great. To be surrounded with people who have a very similar mindset as you is empowering and inspiring. I feel so fortunate to be where I am today, and there are many people who have helped me get here. I cannot wait to be one of the reasons a kid reaches a goal of theirs. Thanks to all the Sport Changes Life staff we’ve met this week who have welcomed us here at Belfast!
