Fresh Cherry and Oat Shake

I watched the Womens Olympic Marathon last night on TV live from London. It was late and I was in my pyjamas but I was in it for the long haul because as you know, I'm into late night endurance sports. But this morning while I was running on the treadmill at the gym, the TV in front of me replayed the race. There they were, those awesome women again, running - just like me  (actually, they were running much faster and a lot further than me, but I wasn't about to let that get in the way of a perfectly good day-dream). As I watched I imagined I was running with them. I was there in London, pounding the pavement and going for GOLD. I came home and made myself a Fresh Cherry and Oat Shake to celebrate my achievement. After all, it's not every day you win a gold medal.
