So thankful for all the love I received after my scary car accident last week. Luckily I came through it unscathed - just a few visits to the chiropractor/PT and I’m good as new 😘

Thanks to all the crap happening, I decided to rewatch some old Kwan videos, and I think we fans are sleeping on her 1998 Goodwill Games performances. They were excellent pick-me-ups. That New York crowd was in love with her and it was probably the best ovation she's had in her competitive career, and that's saying something. It was also an Olympic-sized rink but her speed was tops (much faster than Nagano) and jumps looked on fire with a lot of height (for her). Sure she messed up that loop and doubled that Salchow, but somehow it added more drama leading up to that final Lutz.

Michelle is 40??!! I feel so old ... it was yesterday that she was the fresh faced alternate to the Oly team of Tonya and Nancy.

Happy Birthday Michelle!

Echoing @attyfan -- Michelle turning 40 makes me feel very old. I remember when she turned 21 and that seemed hard to believe.
Happy Birthday to the Kween!

Happy Birthday to the Kween! Can't believe she's 40, I've spent a lifetime with her yet she's still young in the grand scheme of things.

I think I say this every year but I so love seeing Irina Slutskaya and Kwan interacting on Instagram. She gave Kwan a sweet happy birthday message there.

In the past the Kween used to be inspiring ... Now she just looks too good at 40 to be true ... Sheesh!
