Just a quick note on two of my favorite things from the Trials. (And to be fair, I didn't watch anywhere near ALL of the events, so, my favorite moments are ones that I did actually see).
Hillary Bor in the 3000 Men's Steeplechase.
Whoa. The steeplechase is one of my favorite races to watch, because, I honestly just think that it's such a ridiculous and yet awesome race. YOU HAVE TO JUMP OVER A HURDLE AND INTO/OVER A HOLE FULL OF WATER. What the fuck? How is that even a real thing?
Fox Hunt Scene from Mary Poppins
It always makes me think of a scene from my favorite childhood movie: Mary Poppins. I just love the weirdness of it and I can't ever imagine attempting it myself.
Anyway, the finals turned into an amazing race and I loved watching Bor surge at the end and wind up with a ticket to Rio AND a personal best. Not a bad day.
And my other favorite:
Allyson Felix qualifying in the 400m. I can't really pinpoint why I like her so much, but I do. Always have. So, I was thrilled that she will be competing in Rio, as well.
Go Team USA!
