Hi everyone!  Day 1 of competition at the Sochi Games has officially begun. 

Today was my first full day of liveshots. I had eight today... about 130 left to go.  No joke!

I spend most of my day writing and then getting ready for a liveshot, writing, live shot, repeat.

I'm exhausted, but excited for what's ahead.   There are about 20 Northern California in these Winter Games and I can't wait to watch them complete -- everyone from a 15-year-old San Jose figure skating phenom to some extreme Tahoe-area freeskiers that rip it up on the slopes.

So far, Russia has been great! To see a quick video of the first day, click here.
