KEYNOTE #3: SMALL AND SIMPLE THINGS – GOING FROM GOOD TO GREAT
Following a fourth-place finish at the Vancouver Games in 2010, Pikus Pace was devastated. After traveling at speeds of 90-miles per hour down a mile-long track and accumulating her 4 race-times, she missed an Olympic medal by 1/10th of a second. She had followed her training program diligently. Noelle had studied the track and knew how to steer her sled down the course. Was there something she missed? Fourth-place was a good place to finish, but it was far from great. The summer following the Games Noelle decided to watch her Olympic race for the first time. It was then that she made a devastating realization: her shoelaces were dragging the entire way down the mile-long track and cost her an Olympic medal.

Noelle was fantastic! Our founder CRIED during her talk and came to me at the end and said 'I just wanted to say thank you for endorsing Noelle to come because that was the right decision. We have so many women here who she appealed to but she also touched me and had me LAUGHING and CRYING and she had a perfect message for us'. WOOHOO! I loved her, but most importantly our founder and President both loved her too. She did an amazing job and it was just what we were looking for. She even flawlessly tied in a last-minute message from our founder!
