Having no television or internet in my home, I’ve been out of the loop as far as the Olympics go. I plan to catch up at my parents’ house this weekend – they have Tivo. :) But I just read Deena Kastor’s blog and my heart broke for her a little.
Deena Kastor is a marathoner, and she’s one of my heroes. She got me going in running, and whenever I thought training was getting too hard, I thought of her and how hard she worked to get so good. I recommend her blog – she doesn’t write often, but she’s pretty funny and seems like just a really nice person.
I just read that after months and months of preparation for the Olympics, and how she was expected to place, Deena broke her foot after 16 minutes of the race. She wrote about it pretty calmly in the blog, but that’s tough.
Anyway, I feel for her. Send good thoughts her way, okay?
Not really linked with this news, but I decided to start running again. My knee injury from the marathon in June is better. I’m not sure it will ever completely heal… it always feels tight nowadays, but it’s not swelling anymore. I keep ice on it most nights as a precaution. I’m going to start with one day a week, 30 minutes… and see if that works ok. Sometimes at work, or if I’m running late for the bus, I start an all out run without even thinking about it and it feels SO GOOD to stretch my legs. I miss it.
I’ll let y’all know how it works out :) Have a great week.
P.S. To everybody completing the Ravelympics and Knitting Olympics – GREAT job! I’m browsing through my regular bogs and seeing all of these gorgeous FO’s! I’m jealous. I have to start knitting again too :)
