The London Marathon
Did you watch the London Marathon today? I have to admit I'm no sports fanatic by a long chalk but I was gripped by the sheer number of runners out there and I stayed glued to the TV set for a fair while. Lots of congratulations to the winners, all of them. But I think the thing that really struck my heart and I guess everyone else's too, whether taking part or cheering like mad from the sidelines - the number of people with 'Boston' written across their T Shirts and the 30 second silence of remembrance being held for the people of Boston. This was a race like no other.
