Well, I survived the week of heat. We had a few really bad days (I have a 15 minute walk home from work- on one of those days, I had pretty much sweat through part of the waist band of my shorts between work and home) but managed to keep cool for the most part.
Mostly I'm posting this so that the giant video will move down the screen for you. The strange thing is, when I put it up and looked at it using my mac, it was fine. The video stayed nicely within the confines of the margins and it looked normal. Then I checked it out on a PC and WOW- THERE'S A VIDEO...CAN YOU SEE IT? IS IT BIG ENOUGH? Yeah, sorry about that.
I've been a little disappointed with the track and field coverage on TV, but I do like the live streaming on the internet. I was able to listen to a bunch of events whilst working- and of course had to take a little break to actually watch the 200m mens final. Usain Bolt? Amazing. It is just crazy to watch how far ahead he is and even crazier to see him lower world records by tenths instead of hundredths.
Speaking of live streaming, the women's marathon goes tomorrow at 5am. While I don't think I'll get up at 5 to watch the entire thing, I might just get up around 7 to catch the end of it. My favourite runner is competing and she might just have a chance of winning. Go Kara!
Enjoy your weekend!
