Jon Montgomery- one of the greatest Canadians in the games was quoted saying “I had said at the beginning of the race that if I was in that position and I did get gold coming from behind that I was going to remain stoic and respectful because you never want to cheer when somebody else loses. But I have to apologize to Martins. That didn’t happen. I lost my mind when I saw the .07 come up. It was like I had stuck my finger in a light socket.” (source)
He later grabbed a beer from a random woman on the street and decided to auction it off in a television interview that I cannot seem to find anywhere. Priceless Olympic moments.
I have to say it: Best. Olympics. Ever.
I don’t know if it’s an age thing or what it is- but I loved it! Did you see the beavers and lumberjacks at the closing ceremonies? My point is made. (I won’t talk about the music- that was lame- but the beavers made up for it).
Back to business- I’ve now handed in two of my four research papers that are due this week, I have the third completed and I’m waiting for editing (and will submit it later today) and I think tomorrow I will finish up what’s left of my fourth and be done with this semester at school.
I have no idea what happened to February- not one idea- one day- a long, long time ago I was making February resolutions- then went to bed and woke up in March. The last month I think the only thing I did on my resolution list was head to yoga twice a week- which could have been the most important part. I want to say that I failed at my monthly resolutions- but I’m not going to- I was drowning in life, and I had to do what I had to do to stay afloat. This month will be different though- I feel it already!
This morning I woke up to pink skies on my run- which just felt glorious- I came home and had a nice bowl of oats (not pictured- pb, banana, chia, protein, 1/4c oats)- it feels good having oats on Mondays- I feel like I’m just doing something right when I eat them- I think straight, I get more accomplished, I’m not snackish- does anyone else feel that way?
I’m thinking about food I can take with me to Mexico- I’ve never been- don’t know what my options are like- am I pretty safe not bothering with taking food? I’m not dependent on protein powders- I mean I’ll take my gels for my long runs- but other then that- any advice?
I still have to think about my March goals before I go posting them ALL over the internet- I think one of them will definitely be to relax and maybe be nicer to myself- I think those two sound like a good starting point- Have you got going on your March Goals? Post them here- I could use some ideas!
