Will you all be watching the opening ceremonies tomorrow night? I’m soooo excited for the Olympics, and can’t wait to cheer along some of my favorite female runners:
Desiree Davila, Shalane Flanagan, and Kara Goucher. And of course, Lolo Jones.
If you don’t read Outside Magazine, check out this article on Shalane Flanagan. She is a BADASS.
But all four of these women are so amazing, it makes me want to go run a marathon right now. But I can’t. These days, I’m happy with a good, slow four mile run. But don’t you worry. Post baby I hope to be back in marathon shape in no time. The hubs is convinced my marathon days are over forever, so obviously, I’d like prove him wrong. In the meantime, I’ll be cheering for Team USA.
I haven’t decided what sorts of fun treats I’ll make over the next two weeks to celebrate some of my favorite events, but here’s some ideas I’ll draw inspiration from, and maybe you will, too:
Olympic Cookies from Complete Delight’s blog:
Or this cute tank top and gold medal cookies from The Daily Buzz.
It’s also a great time to recycle 4th of July ideas, like this flag cheesecake! And if you’re reading this from another country, adopt it to your own flag using fruit in the right colors!
