I'm still digesting my thoughts from the marathon trials, and I mentioned what I thought about Galen Rupp on my Monday post
I loved watching both races at once, and how each one was different. Both were conservative, but the men's race didn't break up the pack until later in the race, while Shalane and Amy moved away pretty quickly. I love how they worked together for almost the whole race, and talking to one another when one was in a tough patch. They did show interviews that had been done the day before, and I love how determined Amy was after finishing 4th in 2012. I truly believe this is why we need to experience failure during our lives. She was determined, motivated, and she learned from the 2012 experience and what happens? She wins the trials in 2016.
"I get knocked down, but I get up again, you're never gonna keep me down..."
The whole time I was watching the marathon trials, I did have to put up with commercials. Ugh! American TV, just ugh! Sometimes they showed the Olympic commercial for Rio, and all I could think of was "I hate Samba!"
Anybody else think of this?
The track and field trials aren't until July 1, so what do I do now?
So, a little bit about me for the new readers coming in from the blog hop. I'm a 30-something living in Dallas. I grew up hating running, but did it because I had to for the sports I played. I hated it even more when my teams went for long runs together, and let's just say high mileage at high speeds is not my forte. I hated every minute of it. It wasn't until I moved to Dallas almost 7 years ago that I started getting back into shape and fell in love with running. I really wish I had more fun like this when I was younger.
