Thank you to everyone who stopped by to read my first Run the World post on Wednesday, featuring the phenomenal Laura Metzler. Writing that post was the most fun project I’ve done for tracing paper so far, and I can’t wait to talk to more inspiring women. If there’s a badass career woman who you look up to, send her info my way!

Here are some things I’m loving this week, mostly related to the Olympics, officially underway tonight!

Speaking of inspiring women, this book is gold. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!

Aileen Riggin, pictured above, was the youngest Olympic gold medalist when she first won gold at age 14.

The first female U.S. Olympic athletes to win gold in each sport.

All of the things I wanted to say regarding the Rio Olympics, but way better than I could ever say them.

Google takes us inside Rio de Janeiro to introduce us to the city and people hosting this year’s Olympics. Though a little bit heartbreaking at times, it’s a beautiful breath of fresh air from all the negative publicity.

What’re your weekend plans? Tonight, I’ll be ordering a pizza and watching the opening ceremony. Both things are sure to get me emotional.
