NOTE: The FWFG team has been so busy for the past few months that we've ended up with a backlog of travel videos - some of them from 2016. We are working hard to get caught up.
This video is a travel vlog from Adriene's trip to Rio for the Summer Olympics in 2016.
Here's a note Adriene wrote before embarking on her trip:
I’ve always loved the Olympics.
I was in the womb during the 1984 Summer Olympics (age revealed!!!) and have always been in total awe of the Olympic games.
Winter. Summer. I love you both.
I love you both and can settle in for hours watching, following – loving every minute of it.
My Dad recently told me that he recorded a lot of the 84’ Olympics for me on VHS and that I watched them as a kid. Ha!
I have gathered round to watch events with pals every four years.
What will go wrong? What will go right? Oh the joy! The drama! The athleticism! The bravery! The blasphemy! The love.
I am known among my circle of friends for having opening ceremony parties. We even made a little gold medal for Blue (RIP) one year.
I just love it.
Now, do I know that there are things wrong with the Olympics?
Yes, I do.
But on one base level – I’m just sharing a part of me with you. I love the event, it’s global energy and the connect it stirs around the world.
So, when jokes about my attendance in RIO became an invitation – to – make – that – a – reality.
I said YES.
Adidas has invited me as an influencer to attend the games for one week and share my experience with my friends, YOU.
I chose week one.
This will be the first trip I have taken all year in which I am not teaching or leading, but rather, playing and exploring solely.
And you can bet your bottom dollar I am taking you with me.
I invite you to follow me on IG, Twitter and Facebook for photos and videos capturing the experience.
Support my dream of getting to the Olympics by liking the photos!
I’ll be using the hashtag #FWFGRIO to document the journey.
It’s going to be an adventure.
Let’s remember to be kind to one another as we navigate our way through all the confusion and darkness – back towards our true light.
