How Much Do I Love Olympic Track & Field?

This much! Getting a big, fat needle in my spine (an epidural steroid injection for disc degeneration and spinal stenosis) wasn't enough to keep me from watching the Olympic women's 10,000m track finals on my laptop at the hospital. Check out the attached photo of me and my very patient nurse :)

(p.s. Happy to report that I lived, and that our three U.S. women - Amy Hastings, Lisa Uhl and Janet Cherobon-Bawcom - while they didn't medal, all set personal bests in the biggest race of their lives. GO U.S.A!!!)
