First, I wanted to share a quote that my good friend, Laura, shared on facebook. As I read it, I couldn’t help but shake my head in agreement, smile and get goosebumps. She’s 100% right – and she had said this BEFORE Emma Coburn won the first US women’s Olympic medal in the steeplechase yesterday.
“It needs to be said how incredible the USA female runners are. If you judged by the medals you’d be sorely at a loss – that doesn’t tell the whole story. Molly Huddle with an American 10k record on Friday. Today, all 3 American women placed in the top 10 of the Olympic Marathon – history made.”
This past weekend was one of the best I can remember. I took off on Friday – yay – and the day started with an early AM run followed by an amazing day at the beach. My parents, sisters and our own offspring drove to Long Branch – it was the first time my sisters and parents and I have been at the beach together in 20 years.
