    Kristin Armstrong’s journey to a second consecutive cycling time-trial title wasn’t easy, but in the end, it turned out beautifully. Following her triumph in Beijing, Armstrong was at a transition point in her life. She was ready to start a family, which she did shortly after. Her son Lucas was born in 2010, which added a new commitment (and excitement) in her life. While she was overjoyed at the birth of her son, she knew she had to resume the long, grueling hours of training for the cycling season. It was evident Wednesday when she crossed the line in London faster than any other female competitor, that Armstrong had done the work, despite the newly experienced long hours of motherhood. It couldn’t have been any sweeter than when young Lucas accompanied her during her victory celebration in London for all to see. The now 38 year-old Armstrong, who normally hides her emotions well, was noticeably overjoyed as her life came full circle.
