While I love journaling pregnancy progress, I don't want to turn this into a baby blog. So I think it's time to bring back the "Weekend Inspiration" posts.
1) Aside from Kona, I think the finish line at Ironman Coeur d'Alene is THE BEST EVER. Here is a video from this year's race and it looks like it was even more awesome than the last 2 years, if that's even possible. If you don't want to watch the whole thing, at least skip ahead to about the 3:40 mark where a woman crosses the finish line just after midnight. Have tissues handy.
2) Who else has been glued to the NBC sports channel watching the Olympic trials and the Tour de France? If you watched the women's gymnastics last weekend, then you may have seen the heartbreaking performances from Nastia Liukin (2008 Olympic individual all-around gold medalist). She ended up having a rough couple of nights, falling multiple times off the bars. But she kept getting back on, and then even though her chances of making the team were pretty much gone, she still completed her final performance on the balance beam. She rocked it and received a standing ovation from the crowd. Check out this interview - so humble and pulled together.
4) Crossfit at 37 weeks pregnant. Freaking rockin' it! There are more and more of these types of videos popping up. Love that!
5) Did you hear that they added another Ironman venue? Lake Tahoe! Check out the website for some AH-mazing photos. 2014 baby!
