Sometimes I have it, sometimes I lack it. With the Olympics on 24/7, I certainly have more of it than usual! Between live feeds, Twitter, FB, news, etc I’m having a hard time keeping up but I’m loving it and I’ve managed to keep my FOMO in check.
A few of the more captivating stories for me have been…
The Canadian Olympic Team, especially since we seem to have moved beyond the attitude of “oh, I’m just so happy to be here, I’m pleased with my 47th place” attitude to our “I’m here to win!” attitude. Go Canada Go! Also because my Olympic boyfriend is a serious medal contender.
The US swim team. They seem to genuinely like each other – legitimate rivalries included – and who doesn’t love a team that does something like this. Also, the fact that Rory has a HUGE crush on Missy Franklin helps. Oh, and well… Lochte.
The sculling sloth.
Tonight I’ll be in my jammies, cheering at the top of my lungs for the triathletes as they take over Hyde Park. I don’t even care if I wake up the kids, they can watch with me. We can nap tomorrow.
On that note, a few pictures from my inspired lunch-time run (it was hard to turn around and go back to the office, that’s for sure). Stay tuned for a report from Monday’s upcoming adventure… can’t wait!
