Congrats on your 50K!

I watched the men’s triathlon lite on the Olympic channel on my only half-day off in Beijing in three weeks, but missed all the other running events because I was covering other sports, none of them as glamourous — weightlifting, wrestling, boxing, volleyball, baseball. Doing the baseball was a treat though, because it may have been the last ever Olympic baseball tournament since it will be off the programme in London 2012.
