As we watch the Olympics, Ariel and I are constantly amazed by the strength, prowess, and determination of the athletes. It takes so much dedication to a sport to make it this far. There’s even a great Citi commercial about what the athletes have given up on a personal level to achieve their goals.
So imagine my surprise to find out there are so many MOMS competing as Olympians! There are some days when I find it hard to get it all half-way done–I can’t imagine trying to train for the Olympics, take care of my family and my household, and find time to shower!
Here’s a great slide show, courtesy of Mom.me, with info about 10 of the moms competing in the 2012 London Olympics. Count me impressed!!
