The Brighton marathon My legs are still killing from my 5 k run so to stretch them out I walk down to the seafront to see the hardcore runners show me how it's done... It's actually a great day out. The sun is shining, a taste of our long awaited summer. Florence really got into cheering everyone on, everyone got a clap from her as they ran by. You have to take your hat off to all the participants, it takes a certain person to take part. Danny who helped me through my first run yesterday came 94th out of 9000 people, he only started running a year ago so it shows that anyone can do it if they put their mind to it. We watched it from the last stretch along the seafront and stopped outside our great friends Tony's flat (by chance). He made us tea and I bought Florence an ice cream which kept her busy for about half an hour. Next year I am going to train for the marathon but not actually do it-save myself a knee op in future years.
Well done to all the runners, lot of money will have web raised today for great charities!
Although I am not convinced about doing a marathon it has inspired me to get the trainers on again tomorrow...
