One of my favourite Sundays of the year is London marathon day. Yes, the streets are heaving and tubes are slow but the energy of the supporters and the effort of the runners is quite extrordinary.
I had the good fortune to be sharing the day with my dad, cheering on Geoff, George, Nicky, Marc, Dan, Carol and loads more runners. We even had a few celeb spots from the side lines including Chris Evans, Paula Radcliffe, and Iwan Thomas.
After Paris I did say (not very convincingly) that I wouldn’t run another one but after today I think I might give the London ballot one more shot 😉.
Great to spend some time with my dad and hopefully he’ll be fit and running again in two weeks time for the Ealing 10k!
