My heroine wins gold!!

In high school, I was [nordic] ski racing just as much as I was kayak racing and I had dreams of skiing collegiately and beyond. I followed the competition scene; Norway was my favorite, and in particular I liked Marit Bjørgen. No, let me correct myself, I didn't just like her; I wanted to be her. I idolized her because she always won. I idolized her because she was ridiculously fit. And I idolized the look that she achieved with her badass eyebrow ring: rebellious, yet gorgeous.

So the decision to get mine done back in 2006 to match was an easy one, though admittedly weird to explain. ("Yes, that's right. I want to be her.")

Today, she won an Olympic gold medal.

I plan to continue to copy her.
