Pretty fun three weeks in London, at least from my vantage-point on the couch. This past weekend some cool stuff happened in London, like Stephen Kiprotich winning the marathon, and then getting his medal at the closing ceremony. There were a whole lot of races that were really, really fast -- like the women's 4x100 meter relay. Also, the men's 4x100 meter relay.
Sadly the Olympics have now come to a close, which means I now will be breathlessly following DC/Baltimore's attempt to make a bid for the 2024 games. No bigs, just the kind of thing that could be really, really neat to see in person twelve years in the future. Hopefully the end of the Games will mean me spending more time writing and less time on the couch. Will it? We'll see.
