Here's the story from the Games you didn't hear: Four women who fled war-torn countries in hope of a better life and made it to the Games.
You’re probably aware of this, but just in case you forgot.
I’m a little excited. Aren’t you?
The finest athletes in the world competing at the highest level is a pretty special thing. Plus, the fact that the Olympics only come around once every four years makes them extra special, and makes me feel like I have an excuse to go completely nuts about them. Here’s how I will be celebrating tomorrow:
1. Getting my race on
I don’t know about you, but watching competition always makes me hungry to get in the game. Thankfully, I found a local 5k on Friday evening to get the racing itch out of my system before the Opening Ceremonies start.
2. Red, white & blue running gear
3. Opening Ceremony viewing party
“Party” is a strong word, but I will be enjoying the ceremony with running buddies. Being surrounded by fellow fanatics makes watching twice as fun.
I love the idea of arranging the M&M’s like the Olympic rings.
So, I want to know, how are you celebrating the Games? Let me know here or @JessieSebor on Twitter.
