distraction of the week(s): the olympics.

i just can’t get enough of the olympics. water polo, volleyball, high jumps, fencing, swimming–it doesn’t matter what it is, i’ll take it all. i get so pumped and emotional and crazed with excitement. it’s made me look at my old, mud-caked high school running sneakers (yes, these guys are old and yes, i am insanely resourceful) a little bit differently. of course, now they’re my “pond sneakers”, used only for work in the pond or other intense yard maintenance.

so…should i start running? or maybe join a gym to swim? i’ve never been one to work out. i don’t think i was designed to do it. now, give me sports or physical labor and i’m all about it. (i inherited this trait from my father–thanks dad.) see what the olympics is doing to me!?

i better start waking up earlier.
