Chicago has The Purple Pig and Denver has Root Down.

Today, as we were watching Raising an Olympian,
Gibson looked at me and said,
Mom you're raising an Olympian...Me.
He then went on to tell me that he no longer wanted
to play soccer, but wanted to focus on swimming.
He asked to borrow my phone so he could listen to
Needtobreathe as he started his training,
and turned down my Peach Crisp for dinner because,
Olympians don't eat desserts.
