Just a jog to/from parkrun duties this morning. At least weather looking better for tomorrow. Off and running by about midnight I’d say. 60 miles yeh!
In last night’s paper Brendan Foster, “Look at the state of athletics: it’s the worst it has ever been” he continues, “There’s never been more people running, so the contrast with athletics is amazing,” which suggests to me that indeed the best thing about the London Marathon is not that it is a sporting event but that it is a social event.
I will be sick and tired of this theme by tomorrow night I am sure. Takes a whole year to recover. It is magnificent though. The late great Ron Goodwin certainly knew how to write souring music. Sure to be many ‘blubbers’ tomorrow, and this music is the reason.
