The way to watch these games was to DVR it and fast forward to the actual races and interviews or profiles that interest you. I spent less than an hour each day watching what was important to me. I did watch the marathon live and did “waste” that time of my life. In my defense, it was early and I had a great run afterwards. I did feel pathetically slow though compared to what I just watched. I liked it that they did not focus on the Americans. The race upfront was fun to watch. It was great to see the moves made live rather than a replay.
