I have been rooting for Conor Dwyer, a swimmer for the USA. He was on the 200 freestyle relay and they won GOLD!!! GO USA!!! That was exciting. His parents are friends with my parents, so I have been hearing about his grueling training etc for about a year now and was so happy for him that he made the team and stoked that he now has a MEDAL!!! :)
i also watched the beach volleyball match usa vs. aus. That was such a stressful match and then the match point was the longest volley--alas USA won.
Nike has a new campaign: "Find Your Greatness". It is an amazing, super inspiring campaign reminding us we all have the capability to be great and not just on a world recognizing platform. I am loving the way everyone is submitting there quotes on how they find their own greatness--it is truly inspiring. Nikewomen took one of my pics and it is on FB and twitter:
I was so shocked to see it on the twitter feed, then @nerissa_ann said it was on facebook too! :) cool! @nerissa_ann has an awesome pic too!! :)
Withthe way my weekends have been super packed I did my long run on friday rather than saturday. it was an 11 miler and it felt GREAT. I am trying to remember to run EASY on the long runs--not every run is a race. I am glad i chose to do the run on friday since saturday I was volunterring at the Red Ants Pants Festival and would be on my feet for 12 hours.
I am feeling really strong and running faster than i have in a while and enjoying every training workout. It is super motivating having my #SistersInNike. Today is a tempo run. I am feeling confident it will go as well as the first one! :) I am intimidated more by these than the long runs... anyone else?
