Today went to London, stood on the Embankment for nearly three hours, saw the Men’s Marathon pass us by six times. Very warm and sunny, it was hard work standing still and watching. Well done to all who took part in running the streets in those conditions. Well done to everyone who has in anyway taken part in the Olympics, including all the hoarse-throated, sore-hand-clapped spectators.
Afterwards we went to Covent garden for some lunch, the friendly, international feel prevailed. The paralympics start on August 29th and we wish everyone well then.
