It's rare that I cry...

...but today I did. For some reason watching Deena Kastor (I think that's how you spell her last name) sobbing uncontrollably as she made the last lap to win the bronze medal in the women's marathon at the Olympics today had me pretty choked up...I can't explain it...

Only three or four movies have ever made me cry (some of which may surprise you) but I dunno why this struck me beyond the fact that she had probably exceeded her own expectations and even when she was talking in her interview afterwards about how it wasn't just her out there but her coach, husband, family, etc...well...I was still crying...

Sigh...it's times like this that I get reminded that I'm human after all...
