The Saturday night red-eye flight to London was uneventful and after a bus ride from Heathrow that took us through downtown London past Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, we arrived at the Olympic Village. We're situated in the perfect spot in the Village — five minutes from the dining hall and five minutes from the shuttle to the pitch. 

The weather has been absolutely perfect — sunny and warm without a cloud in the sky. We've had two training sessions on the main field and two on the practice field already. We took a little break from the Village on Tuesday, July 24, heading outside of London to the Cotswolds for a team-bonding retreat before returning for our only pre-Olympics warm-up scrimmage, facing Holland Thursday, July 26 mid-day.

“It was a surreal experience walking into the stadium past all the London 2012 signs and the Olympic Rings and finally seeing the blue turf in person,” commented Katie.

“The 360 degree view of all the seats from the field was incredible. I can't wait to see it full for our first game against Germany!” added Julia.
