I heart the Olympics.
I could sit and watch the golden moments and the not so podium performances all day long.
The athletic achievements are unbelievable and the limits of human speed and strength and skill are impressive, inspiring, at times incomprehensible. The golden moments this August will be awesome.
The “failures” are epic, but still leave these athletes as top 50 or so in the world in their sport.
The Olympics make me want to go out and better myself. I want to be a more competitive runner and a more well-rounded athlete.
But then I’d have to shut off the tv and get off the couch and stop being inspired.
