I feel like I've won the track nerd lottery. I am here at the Olympic Trials until Saturday morning! I have been busy watching, soaking in the experience and blogging for Oiselle.com. You should follow that blog - we are going to have great photos and recaps every day. In other words, that's where my updates are going.
We're about to run out the door again to watch the 3,000m Steeple qualifiers. So I'll leave you with some quick highlights.
Meeting Amanda Bingson, Hammer Thrower headed to London
Seeing Nike HQ
Meeting Joan Benoit Samuelson and having her autograph my day 1 ticket, featuring her 1984 Olympic Marathon victory.
Watching Amy Hastings win the 10K and make her first Olympic team. I ran to lean over the rail to get a high five. I was like a total track groupie freak. I couldn't believe I was inches away from her and Shalane. AND touching their hands!!
The men's race was great too. The drama of Dathan Ritzenhein making the Olympics. He needed top three AND the A standard. The happiness and relief that came over his face was moving.
Seeing Deena Kastor and Joanie honor the top three women in the 10k.
Hanging out with good friends, new friends and my sis!!
So much more to come and seriously check out Oiselle's blog for so MUCH GOODNESS! #totallytrials
