These athletes are all champions

It was hot, really hot.  It was over 108 degrees.  It was a long weekend. They arrived Friday afternoon and were not done competing until Sunday afternoon.   They traveled from near and far.  They became quick friends.  They cheered each other on.  They are the athletes of Special Olympics.

This weekend, athletes from all over Northern California merged on the University of California at Davis arrived to swim, race, compete in tennis and boccie' ball.  But more so, these athletes inspire and amazed the  parents, friends, fans and volunteers who came to watch them.

I am very proud to say the Galt athletes were brave ran hard.  They made me proud.

The torch is arriving

Be gentle.
