Today I had the privilege to watch the Women’s Cycling Road Race. When I arrived right before the start the weather wasn’t cooperating and it was sprinkling off and on. That didn’t deter the riders. I live close to the starting line and one rider was starting to break away from the group.
Later in the day I claimed a good spot to watch the return of the riders. On my walk there the weather was pleasant. However, it started to sprinkle. Then I heard thunder. Soon it was really raining. When the riders flew by, it was pouring. Even though the weather wasn’t great, it was fun to see the race. In addition, Lizzie Armitstead won the silver, which is Great Britain’s first medal of the 2012 Olympics. That’s pretty cool.
I hope everyone is having an enjoyable time watching all of the events.
