It's just that I was an athlete in high school and pushed myself hard and it paid off. Is it me? Or are some of the athletes just doing their best without that extra push? wtf2.gif

I've only watched a couple of events. The summer games don't interest me much.

I had alot of energy to expend so I started by joining the girls' basketball and badminton teams. I became the badminton champion of all the schools in our district.

I then joined track and field. I was the fastest sprinter, long and short jumper, and hurdler for my age/grade. The long distance running was something I needed to work on. It takes a great deal more training and strategy than sprinting IMO.

It just seems to me watching the Canadian athletes against the other athletes that a certain "UMPH" is missing.

Do you still run? I took up running after I stopped playing hockey last year.

Hiking is the ultimate exercise, really no risk of injury unless you walk in high heels. blonde.gif

Yep, it's a great workout, especially if you carry a pack. I like cross country runs too, with hills.

I have a 5k race tonight as well. They serve biere at the end beerbong.gif

That's right too. The Bruce Trail Association here, which I was a memeber long ago, always ended their long hikes at a pub. chuckle.gif
