The US Olympic Trials Got Me Moving Fast

In other far less serious news I wanted to share with you a personal triumph from the 4th of July. After watching the US Olympic Trials at Hayward Field in Eugene, OR I was completely inspired. These track and field athletes blew me away with their speed, endurance and overall athleticism.

I’m a Runner.
Mind you I’m a runner; I’ve completed countless half marathons and ran the Eugene Marathon in 2010. Running has been a part of my life since the late 90’s and after watching these Olympic qualifying athletes I realized I could improve my running by taking myself a little more¬†seriously. I’ve been running a lot more since the events and even set a PR in an event on July 4th running 25:37 in a recent 5k. [Insert applause, ha!]

What have you conquered this summer? Whether it’s big, little, I’m all ears. Dish!
