Who watched the Boston Marathon? I wasn’t able to watch much online this year because the times didn’t line up with my lunch, but I watched some of it when I got home. I’m amazed by two things:
The classiness of Meb. He didn’t have a great day. But not a horrible one either, a 2:12 marathon, hello! I’ve been amazed by his class in every newspaper and T.V. interview I’ve seen. (photo from the Washington Post).
The grit of Desiree Linden. Look at her face here! She was determined to not let the pace slow, as she knew the fewer women in the lead pack at the end, the higher she’d finish. When the pack slowed, she took the lead and pulled them forward. (photo from the Boston Globe)
We are enjoying 20-some mph winds here today, so I guess the Boston weather somehow drifted back west. It’s also only in the 40’s, which is really painful after a warm week last week. I don’t think I feel like fighting those winds, so I’ll probably attempt the treadmill tonight. I say “attempt” because my knee is mad at me. I’m due for an adjustment, but because of my kids’ activities, I don’t have time to go for this week! I’m hoping I just tweaked it at yoga last night somehow. We did a lot of warrior I and I was having trouble with the hip twisting.
And that’s all for today. I’m off to do dishes and then hopefully run!
