The Games are here. Watching the Opening Ceremony. Nice to see Haile Gebrselassie. I got goose bumps watching the proceeding. The athlete march. The flame. This is my favorite event in the world.
Thailand has good medal chances in boxing and taekwondo.
Athletics won’t begin till Fri 3 Aug. My marathon picks are Kipsang and Keitany (London winners).
Partly inspired by the Olympics, I’m eyeing a 10 km race on 5 August. It will be a challenge due to my low training mileage. I feel good and healthy, just not very fit. But goal is to have fun. One week to prepare.
