    Olympics Excitement

    Three days.  I am so excited for the start of the 2012 Olympics that I can’t even put it into words!  I have always loved to watch gymnastics – Mary Lou Retton was my hero back in 1984 when I was 11 years old.  I remember getting up each morning and being glued to the TV to find out when we could see gymnastics.  Now that I am mostly grown up I find that I love watching most of the Olympic sports.

    Having competed in numerous road races and trying to learn to swim efficiently for exercise has given me a whole new appreciation for these athletes.  Keep in mind that I don’t run or swim anywhere near as fast as these athletes, even in my dreams, but watching some of these Olympians realize their life-long dreams sends chills right up my spine!

    My favorite events to watch are:

    • Gymnastics
    • Diving
    • Marathon – Go Kara!
    • Other track races/jumps
    • Swimming – Dana Vollmer just so happens to be a gluten-free athlete!  Go Dana!!
    • Volleyball

    Which Olympic events are your favorites to watch?  My DVR will be busy for the next couple of weeks and I will have plenty of content to watch while stretching and foam rolling.
