Fall for gold

Fall for gold I have been so glued to the Olympics over this last week, it’s been amazing so far. Tonight it was the turn of the 10,000 metres and the great Mo Farrell running for Team GB. 25 laps of the track, know which I know how hard that can be. The race started well for Mo until he fell, however, he wasn’t down long before he was back up and running. It wasn’t until about 4 laps to go before things heated up and the race was on. It wasn’t until the home straight where he hit the front and winning the 10,000 meters in just a little over 27 minutes, a full 6 minutes faster than I ever have run the distance. Will he make it the double again and retain the Gold in the 5,000 metres, I guess we will soon find out. Did you see any of the 10,000 metres race tonight? Have you ever ran a 10,000-metre race before?

I ran a ten k while I was in college. It was a road course and had been set up as the final exam for our jogging and conditioning class. To say I ran the whole thing was being a bit generous. After the first six and a half k my legs went a little wonky and I walked until I felt I could go again. I was beat. Coach was impressed with my effort. This was the Los Angeles area and I have minor asthma. For me just finishing was quite a feat.
