8.5 miles on the treadmill averaging 8 mph.

Watching the Olympics I just learned that the Brits consume 156 million cups of tea every day. Works out to 3 1/3 cups per person. They interviewed Thomas Twining - the 10th generation in his family to head the Twining's Tea Company. He claimed that tea was "the most healthful and sociable beverage one can consume".

Actually caused me to get up and make a cup of tea.

Eleven miles in 1:25 around Sugarhouse.Right knee ached, heel hurt lots despite taking Ibuprofin.

There's a discussion going on on the letsrun message board called "what would Galen Rupp have to do at the Olympics to become a household name in the U.S.

I would say win gold in the women's gymnastics all-around.
