SPT- Olympic style

We are taking the olympic motto this month- Citius (faster), Altius (higher), Fortius(stronger).


Lately, my husband has stopped running with me in the mornings, I have started eating chocolate like there is no tomorrow and I have become lazy with the August heat. I definitely need a little inspiration.



Somehow this post was deleted, so I will try to recreate the things that are starting to inspire me, like the fact that my husband might be headed to Iraq in September. We still don't know for sure-love that about the army! I want to look smokin' hot for him when he comes back.



The Olympics and people like Dara Torres, the 41 year old swimmer who is just swimming faster than ever.



These shoes with all their holes that went through all the training for a marathon, the marathon and now almost a year later. It is definitely time for these:



And my new- OK, my very first ever- MP3 player. The song on it is what I call Our Marathon Song. It came on several times when we woke up to do training runs and it was the song that woke us up on the day of the marathon. I think the words fit- wanna make a memory?!

Here's to smokin' hot bods, being faster (Citius) and a little summer olympic dominance! PS this was the fastest time I have run since running this 5.25 mile course that has a ton of hills- with a couple really steep ones. but, shhh don't tell my husband or he'll think I need to run that fast always!

No one made a comment on this blog; therefore, I thought I would. Did I ever tell you that I love running behind you, and with that time and hills I am going to have to? By the way, the view is terrific. :)

You are the strongest woman I know. As your mother would say, "You go Girl".

Since you didn't get your normal comments on this blog I think I will jump in.

Did I ever tell you that I love running behind you, and with that time and hills I am going to have to? By the way, that view is terrific. :)
