A glimpse of the Olympics

No I don’t have Olympic tickets…who needs tickets when you can get in to the beautiful new stadium for one of the Olympic test events for free?!  Amazing…we were the first people to witness an event in the stadium by attending the Gold Challenge races.  A large number of charities were there and all raced to raise money for their causes.

The day was bright and sunny and spirits were high.  I much prefer the park like this…a few thousand people having fun and well-behaved with no crazy sponsorship ads covering every surface.

But more power to you if you do have tickets!  Pack some sunscreen because it was April 1st and I still got burned…
