Today I'm once again sharing some of my experiences at the Olympics in London. This is post #4 and if you've missed any of my previous posts, you can find them here, here, and here.
I'm going to pick up my story on this past Monday, when we had our final day of attending Olympic events. We had the good fortune to attend the athletics and see lots of track and field action. The vibe of the Olympic Stadium was extraordinary! All of the events that we saw were great, but seeing the events in the stadium felt extra Olympic-esque :-) It was a fitting end to our time as Olympic spectators.

I came away from these days at the Olympics with a sense of inspiration. It was truly great to see all of these amazing athletes and I was struck by how much they have had to go through to get onto the Olympic stage. The years of training and dedication all come together to bring them to this moment in their lives. They are all incredible!
This is the last of my posts about our attendance of the Olympic events. I hope that you've enjoyed the photos. Thanks for taking this journey with me! :-)
Until next time...
