Beijing Blogs: Jessica Cosby Shops For Olympic Gear

Aug. 1, 2008

I have finally made it through team processing here in San Jose. I had no idea what to expect except for a long day and that was exactly what it was. The most memorable part of the team processing experience for me hands down was shopping from station to station for my Olympic Team clothing while pushing a grocery cart around a big meeting room. I like to shop and I thought it was so much fun. There was so much clothing that I got, I actually wished that I didn't bring so many clothes. This really didn't matter much because we got to ship home all of the extra stuff that we didn't need.

Although today was a long day, I enjoyed every minute of it. Ring sizing, the meetings, getting my clothes altered, taking pictures, and having the media follow you around. This is something that I will remember forever and be able to tell my children and grandchildren about one day.If this had been any other day and I knew that I had all those things to do, I probably would have not been at all excited and might have put some things off until a later time, but this time its different...I can't wait to get to China.
