It’s finally here: Andrea Glazer’s first blog post as a Maccabian

(Editor’s note: Andrea Glazer of Louisville, who is competing for Team USA in the 20th Maccabiah Games in Israel, July 4-18, as an equestrian, will be blogging about her experiences from the Jewish state. She has agreed to share her posts with Community. You can also follow her at her blog site,

Thank God.

I am finally in the Louisville airport on my way to New York! After 6 months of intense training to prepare, and three days packing for Israel, Australia, and the team, my stress has finally turned into excitement for this crazy adventure. Since I am about to board my flight, I want to keep it short and sweet, and just give a brief overview of what I hope you get out of this blog.

I will use this platform to keep everyone up-to-date on everything including meeting my teammates and the teams from all over the world, the “horse draw” that I have been anxiously anticipating for months, traveling and exploring Israel, maybe a party or two (sorry Mom), and of course, the competition.

I can’t express enough how grateful I am for this opportunity and the unwavering support from everyone. Go check out my “About Me” page to find out more about the Maccabiah Games and how I got to where I am today.

Yesterday, I had the most fun jumping lesson on Alex Bank’s horse, Finn! Check out my Facebook page to watch it!
