I am inspired

What an inspiring weekend!!

There was no time really to blog or even upload any of the many photos I took.

It all started off with watching the Women’s triathlon on Saturday which was great to watch live.

Mo Farrah winning gold in the 10k was my personal highlight. I have been running “with him” in two London 10k this year and last year. “With him” of course meaning he was in the pool of elite athletes nearly finishing the race before I even got started, but still we ran the same race. 🙂 It was so great see him run and win the 10k!

I also loved Jessica Ennis winning gold (even if that meant my home team Germany had to settle for silver). Jessica Ennis as one of the faces for the Olympics has come across in the many interviews she has given over the past year as a truly loveable person and she worked so hard for this moment.

Today, the excitement just kept going. I watched the women’s marathon from the barrier, waited in the rain and was just amazed at the pure strength of the athletes. I did think though that they would be a little faster, but alas Tiki Gelana did run a new Olympic record.

Another great event to watch was the men’s 100 meter final. Usain Bolt did it again. What kind of power was in that 100 meter race? It was mind-blowing to watch. Second fastest 100 meter ever.

One of the London 2012 goals is to create a legacy and inspire young people to take up sports and become the future of the Olympics. I am already inspired! I didn’t know that I would be this captivated and in awe of what’s going on at my doorsteps. But I am loving every minute of it!

Here is to even more inspiration next week!

Happy Olympics!

  1. I definitely feel like I’m giving my workouts more effort this past week!

    • I haven’t. LOL. I have been walking so much I am exhausted, but am working on a new work-out plan to get a PR this year, so post-Olympic action – get ready next week! 😉

  2. Despite spending the whole weekend sat on the sofa watching this unfold on the television, I am inspired too! I feel so lazy though!
