Our boy looks good with that #Olympic torch 🔥 #Repost @ebenezersamuel23
Throwing it back to ... a whopping two days ago for that very special moment when I was blessed enough to be part of the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics torch relay.
I spent a lot of years watching the Olympics but never really comprehended the journey of the Olympic flame until this week. The torch relay is a collaborative effort: Over more than 100 days, the flame travels thousands of miles from Athens to the Games, carried by thousands. Each person runs with special zeal, for their own reasons.
It's a surreal moment when you get your chance, a few hundred meters that help set up the Olympics. As you relish your moment, you set up the next runner's surreal moment; when the Olympic torch is finally lit, it's the culmination of all these moments.
It's a cycle that repeats in the life of each runner: none carry the torch if not for the story of their life that got them there. Thankful for all the people in my life who helped get me this far, and who helped make this year's Olympic flame that much more significant for me.
