Today I opted to take my speed workout to the track. My way of celebrating and paying homage to a couple Olympic track stories that really caught my heart. One was the spectacular manner in which the US women’s 4 x100 relay team kicked butt. They set a new world record and overcame all the relay blunders that have plagued the teams in the last few Olympics. THe second story was an absolutely heart wrenching one involving Morgan Uceny, a medal contender for the 1500m. During the bell lap, she was tripped and fell onto the track, where she stayed, and sobbed, and sobbed, and sobbed. The same thing had happened to her last year during the world championship as well. Oh and did I mention it was on the same date as Mary Decker’s fall in the 1984 games????
