Is it just me or is the time till US Nationals moving slower than usual? I'm so excited to see Meryl and Charlie and what they've done with their FD since the GPF. While waiting, I can only imagine what the anticipation will be like next year with so much to look forward to at the Olympics. I wish them much good luck at their Nationals and of course at Worlds.
So are any of the regulars of this thread going to Nationals? (still amazed that I get to go!!!)
I wish!! Being a poor college student does not leave any extra money, though. :/ My goal is 2014! But I'm so excited for everyone that gets to go to Ohama! I can't wait to start getting practice reports and such. Here's hoping Meryl and Charlie have a great competition!

Meryl is amazing!
I'm going to twizzle into a triple axel and spiral out of it.
Great article and very touching story.

Meryl and Charlie are without a doubt my all time favorite skaters. Not only are they fantastic skaters, they are wonderful people. So proud to be their fan!
Thanks for posting, it is a nice article. It's amazing how often in life just knowing that someone else has a similar experience helps. In this case, someone who you look up to because of their achievements.

Absolutely. I teared up too.
I'm tearing up too. The part about the little boy himself asking if they could hang Meryl's picture on their "Wall of Fame."
to Meryl. It's wonderful that she is wiling to share her story and that it clearly helped and meant a lot to that little boy.
Now to lighten the mood a little bit. Meryl and Charlie had a little mishap in practice.
I admire Meryl so much. What a wonderful story- I'm glad that little boy was strengthened by what she shared.
Omg, that vid was so funny! Thanks!
Awww, what a great story (the classroom one)! Meryl probably didn't expect that she would have such an impact with that story....that was so thoughtful of her to share it.
I wish my elementary school classes got to correspond with Olympians - I missed all the fun, lol.
That vid of Meryl getting caught on Charlie's shirt is too funny!
I'm listening to the pre Nationals teleconferences and wondering where Meryl and Charlie's is. (such bad grammar I know) Hopefully it will be up in next few days.
Watched youtube vids of Meryl and Charlie on my big screen TV last night. Getting so psyched about seeing them next week!!!
