After 3 days in Beijing I think I'm ready to go for the gold.  I am used to the hot, humid weather and I have adjusted to the new time zone, which is 15 hours ahead of my home in the U.S.

The question is, which event should I win?  I like ping pong, but I'm better at bicycling.  I also like diving, but shooting seems like a good thing to try.  I watched weight lifting yesterday and I think I'd be pretty good at that, too.  I should take a lesson first, though.

I think I'll stroll into the hutong and think about it over some dumplings this morning.  I found a shop with some great food, very nice people, and good prices.  The steamed treats should help my mind decide which events to win.  I feel sorry for my future competitors, unless they are happy with winning silver.  I am not.  It's gold only for me.

The best thing about being here is the support I've received from Ebaby! members.  They've found us on the streets, in shops and waiting outside our hotel just to wish us luck.  Thank you, members.  I'll do my best for you.
