Track and Field World Championships

The races were awesome. The 100m with Bolt and Gay was amazing...9.56!!!!

I was most impressed with this little darlin' Jessica Ennis competing in the women's heptathlon. She blew everyone else out of the water and could have walked the last event, the 800m, and still have won. The most amazing part...she's 5'4". She smoked everyone in the high hurdles and even the high jump. And when I say everyone, I'm talking about Olympic athletes, most as tall as 6'.

She really sets the stage for no excuses! Don't set limits on yourself because of your shape or size. When my girls get older and complain that they're not tall enough for this (which they most likely won't be) or built right for that...I'm going to tell them about Jessica Ennis.
