Vail Daily letter: Meeting Lindsey |

Vail Daily letter: Meeting Lindsey

Skiing on the hill,

Goosebumps running down my back,

But not from the cold.

Pros skiing right there,

Lindsey, Bode, Ted and more,

I watch them in awe.


Watching their races from screens,

Still filled with great excitement.

Here my idols are,

In Vail they ski like angels,

Only steps away.

The lift is waiting,

But I see her leaving,

All I do is stare.

Lindsey sees me look,

She smiles effortlessly,

And I smile back.

I try not to faint,

I manage a “Hi, Lindsey!”

And hope for the best.

She responds to me!

And makes me feel like I matter.

We talk like old friends.

I am on cloud nine!

Lindsey Vonn! She’s amazing!

My life seems complete.
