    I’m watching the Closing Ceremonies & I already miss the Olympics! I’m always sad when they’re over ๐Ÿ™ Oh, and I felt really bad for Ryan Hall that he had to leave the Marathon! He obviously knew his body was telling him to stop, but it still really sucks. Meb was so inspiring! I hope that I’m even a little bit as fit as he is at close to 40 ๐Ÿ™‚

    I made your triscuit chicken nuggets for my flatmates and they loved them!

    I’m so sad that the Olympics are over. I imagine this entire week will be spent in something of a post-Olympics slump. ๐Ÿ™

    Yeah, Stephen Kiprotich deserved. Moved from his home country of Uganda to train in Kenya where they take distance running more seriously. He looks like such a nice guy, too.

    For the second year in a row I have managed to miss out on adding my name to the ballot for London, here’s a tip when (of course it is a when not an if!) you do it. Unlike NY which is open for entries to the ballot for months, the London one is only open for about a week, right after the marathon is ran. Don’t be as daft as me and miss it…. You better be sure that my name will be in there next year!!!

    I was out on the course watching the marathon yesterday and the women’s event last week, so inspiring! Even the ones that finished dead last are really fast, and I will admit to being rather touched when these athletes gets almost the biggest cheer from the crowds.

    Don’t forget the Paralympics though!!! Only just over two weeks to go, you bet I’ll be out there catching as much as I can of that too.

    I completely agree on everything you said about the marathon! I was so happy to see Meb cross the finish line with a massive smile on his face and waving the flag behind him. And also – so happy for Uganda! He won only their second gold medal ever! That course looked so hard and it seems like it took a toll on many runners.

    Great recap. I missed the race but I know it’s always inspiring to watch. Crazy about all the people dropping out, but you have to be safe with your bodies.

    I watched it. I turned it on when they were about 20 minutes in (I was outside with my doggies when it started). It really was an amazing race. And its amazing how much my love of the Olympics has changed and grown since I took up running a year and a half ago. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The men’s marathon was definitely the highlight of the Olympics for me! My hsuband and I got up extra early to head to the gym to watch it while we did our long runs. I was cheering at the end–thank goodness no one else was in the gym, because I looked like a crazy!

    Meb had an amazing finish, going from as far back as 17th at one point to taking 4th! And Stephen Kiprotich definitely deserved the gold–I was so happy for him and for Uganda!

    So sad the Olympics are over!

    I felt bad for Hall, but I’m glad he had the sense to stop and not push himself to injury — I’m certain it wasn’t an easy decision!

    I’d love to run the London marathon. I know loads of people who have done it as their first marathon and they loved it. It’s really hard to get into though. All the people I know did it through using a charity entry so had to raise a big chunk of money as well as train.
