I watched the Olympic marathon for the first time ever just now. Wow. Just...wow.
The women are insane! They were hooning along so quickly, and their muscles are crazy. I feel so inspired now! I was partly watching to see Kara Goucher, an American runner I discovered through Run the Edge, but it was great to see the Ethiopians and Kenyans up the front. And then a Russian who kept up and placed as well. Awesome stuff!
And now I'm watching the men's gymnastics finals. I've always had a soft spot for Japanese gymnasts and am not disappointed.
God bless the Olympics indeed ;)
