    The road to the Olympics isn't a glamorous one, but I guess you could say it's family friendly. Right now I'm in Concord, Mass., staying with a local family while we train in Bedford, Mass., just outside of Boston. Short-term leases are super exp...

  7. Already prepping for Sochi

    Julie Chu

    I can't believe we're already here at the Olympic training camp, trying out for the 2014 roster. It seems like just yesterday it was 2010 and Sochi felt like it was forever away. The past three years went by in a blink! But as fast as it's gone, we a...

  11. At Four Nations, yet again

    Julie Chu

    I'm one of the veterans on the U.S. women's national team, but when I look at the younger players, I'm humbled to think that I was in their shoes not too long ago. In fact, I remember being absolutely terrified as a 17-year-old playing with the natio...
