Keith and I are officially Olympic junkies. Aside from a few workouts and a trip to the dog park we have had our butts parked on the couch watching all the Olympic glory.
We are in HEAVEN!
Without a doubt my favorite sport is Track and Field. That is probably because I was a track athlete and I know all the rules and can relate to the lingo and the sport.
But my favorite female athletes are beach volleyball players Misty May-Treanor and Keri Walsh-Jennings. The professional volleyball tour came to Austin when Keith and I first started dating (2006) and we got to see them in person. It was very very cool! My favorite male athlete is, hands down, Michael Phelps!
Yesterday morning I was up early watching the NBC coverage while sipping on coffee. It was quiet (as Keith and Bella were still asleep) and I enjoyed my lazy morning as the world came to life.
There was lots of snacking on healthy Olympic worthy food. I felt like channeling my inner athlete with healthy eats!
I also said about 5,000 times, “I want to move to London!” I had the good fortune to visit London last October with my mama and I fell smack in love with that city. So seeing all the London sites makes me itching to go back! Like yesterday.
Did anyone catch the female volleyball player named Destinee Hooker? What were her parents thinking? Really.
I plan to soak up as much Olympic coverage as I can. I am staying off Twitter as much as possible to avoid seeing who won what events with the time delay and air times. I am invested. Like completely invested.
Are you an Olympic fan?
