I love the Olympics! I love competition & I love the USA- so this is a no brainer. Here a are a handful of things I’ve found across the internet about Olympic-y things.
1) 8 month Pregnant Woman competes for Malaysia’s 1st Gold Medal
Nur Suryani Mohamad Taibi will also be the 1st woman competing in Olympic Shooting for Malaysia. ISN’T THAT NUTS?!
Read about her here. Also, this year almost every country represented will be sending a woman. #finally
2) Healthy Lifestyle Changes Anyone Can Make
I thought Taylor @ Our Military Home offered some really practical advice for getting healthy. Maybe this could be the start of your Olympic Career! Read the article here.
3) Olympics, Performance, & Rest, an interview from Bethel Church with 2 Olympians.
I listened to this interview/sermon on the treadmill yesterday and was SUPER inspired. Ryan Hall is an Olympic Marathon Runner who runs 100 miles a week. His wife, Sara, is a short distance runner. They have a desire to use their gift of running to help people. I was SO BLESSED listening to this! HIGHLY recommend! It’s about so much more than running- there were about a million spiritual parallels. You can listen/download here. (PS If you listen- Sara is competing TONIGHT in the trials!)
4) Olympic Trivia
I love trivia- here’s a short video with some fun facts.
USA! USA! USA! USA! USA!
