I’m baaack! The Olympics were absolutely wonderful, everything I ever dreamed of! After so much excitement getting back to real life suuucked but it helped to talk about the Olympics a lot with curious friends and coworkers. I’ve also been busy writing freelance articles and being interviewed about my trip.
A post on my Olympic adventures is definitely coming but I need a bit more time to let the trip settle in my mind before I write that entry! Instead I’ll leave you with this sneak peak about how I really felt at the Olympics, as captured by Miss Mel.
Instead of wallowing (too much) in post Olympic letdown I set my sights on the next trip, the Chi-lympics. I’ll be heading to Chicago shortly for a fun time with friends and my first 5k race! Two of us will be running the St. Patty’s Leprechaun run.
Unfortunately the little injury I mentioned a while ago? I’m still not 100% but I’m not going to let it keep me down! Instead I’ve been spending quality time resting with ice packs and keeping my activity levels up without running. I may not finish with a great time but I will have fun, listen to my body and run/walk as needed. Leprechaun Limp here we come!! It’s going to be a blast!
