First off I want to say a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to my cutest friend Pam for her PR at the San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon!!!
(Pam and I before Las Vegas RNR)
No pictures of food today because let’s see…so far I have had oatmeal for breakfast and I made Billy make me mac and cheese for lunch so clearly I am living the life of the healthiest runner around.
Instead lets talk a bunch about running and other stuff mkay?!?!
THE WORLD’S GREATEST ATHLETE.
I am not going to lie, I didn’t know anything about the decathlon until reading this in the July 2012 Runner’s World issue but now I am beyond interested in learning more about it and watching it in a few months.
Ashton Eaton (above) will be competing to join the US team for the London Olympics. He took the silver medal at the World Championships last year!
“At just 24, he’s the greatest runner ever to compete on the decathlon’s world stage. His times in the decathlon’s four running events–the 100 meters, the 110-meter hurdles, the 400 meters, and the 1500 meters–yield enough points to make him a contender in any championship he enters.”
I wonder how many hours a week you have to train for to compete in TEN different events…endorphin city!
PS I am beyond excited because one of my favorite shows is starting up again TODAY!
It is on ABC but I will be watching it on Hulu tomorrow….this is what happens when you don’t have a job anymore, you count down the minutes till watching your favorite shows….oh wait, I did that when I was working too.
What Rock ‘n’ Roll races have you done? Ever ran the San Diego one? Did you know anyone that ran that one today?
Have you had a nutritious day of eats or has it been random like mine?
Are you currently training to get a pr? For what distance?
Any other Extreme Makeover fans out there?
