Today marks TWO YEARS to go until the Rio 2016 Olympic Games!
We also happen to be smack dab in the middle of the two year anniversary of London 2012. In fact, two years ago today, I was there. In London. Doing all manner of Olympic things. Man, that was wonderful.
So basically, today is gloriously Olympic -- we're at the halfway point! -- and I would be remiss if I didn't take this opportunity to spend some quality time with my London 2012 memories. Warning: lots of photos. I mean, like, lots of photos. I've already done a London 2012 photo dump before, but I don't really care. I'm doing another one. Because of reasons.
If you weren't around these parts in 2012, here's the skinny on my London 2012 situation: I was originally supposed to go with a friend, but she backed out and my plans kind of went to hell... but a distant relative offered me his flat to stay in, so I booked last-minute flights and a week later I was jetting off to London by myself. I got to put my claim-a-spot-at-the-barrier skills to use at the women's marathon, men's race walk and both triathlons, and my old London 2012 Ceremonies coworkers got me into a day of volunteering and a closing ceremony dress rehearsal.
It. was. the. greatest.
I only wish I'd taken pictures at the closing ceremony dress rehearsal (the only ones I got are those whiteboard photos, from inside the volunteer break tents). Photography wasn't technically allowed, because they wanted to avoid all possible spoilers, but some people did it anyway and I SO wish I'd been one of them. Sigh. But hey, I guess that's a small price to pay!
London 2012 will forever have my heart... but onwards! Hashtag ROAD TO RIO!
