The Olympics

While everyone has been getting into the Olympics this summer, I regret to admit that I have not.  Not because I haven't wanted to, but because there is a lack of a television in my house here in Chicago.  However, today at the gym, someone finally turned the station to the olympics (instead of the usual CNN, boxing, the cooking channel, and Dr. Phil... why people turn the cooking channel on at the gym is besides me-- it's a killer!). 

Anyway, this afternoon consisted of track and field competitions.  Let me tell ya, there are not many more demotivating factors than watching people run a marathon in about the time it takes me to run 5 miles on the elliptical.  Or to watch people sprint a lap around the track in as much time as it takes me to run about 1/4 of that distance.  Awesome. I wonder what I missed on the Cooking Channel today...???
