The workout: 40minute run

Felt GREAT on my run today! I wasn't worried about feeling "off" since I arrived - it was completely expected, which is why I traveled on the 5th instead of waiting until closer to my race. However, it's just nice to feel like myself again and fully adjusted. I truly enjoyed the run today and my body feels strong and smooth. Thank you Lord!

At 1:30pm we boarded a bus to drive down to Rio and move into the Olympic Athlete Village. We were told it would be about a 4 hour journey, and in the end it was quite a bit longer due to a variety of reasons. The good news is at least it was the nicest bus I have ever been on, and I didn't run out of battery power on my phone, and I had snacks and water. Focusing on the positives!

It also didn't hurt that the village grounds are totally BEAUTIFUL! No pics to show yet since it was dark when we arrived. Check back in a couple days...
