Inspired

Seeing the crazy pace the men's marathoners started at inspired me to get back on the treadmill. About 12 minutes into the live coverage of their race.

While watching the marathon, I walked a fast (for me) mile plus some cool down for 25 minutes, stretched out some, watched more of the marathon, made myself a kick-ass celebratory blueberry/banana smoothie, and then watched the finish of the race.

Not sure the motivation will endure, but it felt good to show a little solidarity with the runners.

  1. How long does it take the Olympians to run a marathon? I cannot even imagine!

    Good for you for getting on the treadmill!

  2. It only took the winner of the men's race 2 hours, 6 minutes, and 32 seconds.

    2:26:44 for the women's marathon winner.

    Totally crazy.
