Meanwhile, EN head cheese Jenni Autry is slaving away in the Olympic media center to bring us all of the behind the scenes action:
Today’s office view in Rio does not suck! The weather is gorgeous with low humidity, which is making the horses super happy. The venue looks great. The housing is doable. The buses have wifi. There’s even a little restaurant outside the media center. So far so good #rio2016 #twohearts #jointhejourney #eventing #equestrian
