london marathon

We've watched bits of the London Marathon in the past, by accident or design, though I always have mixed feelings about it, not really feeling it's something to be held or watched on Sunday. Last year, on Sunday 21 April, we had the full-on experience, after church, as Clive was running in it, so we with Naomi went to see him at three different places on the route (at Mudchute, Limehouse and the underpass west of London Bridge, which is where we've gone from church once before, to the pedestrian flyover on that occasion), and then met him afterwards at the end. If we hadn't met him so often he would have made his target time, so a bit of a mixed blessing, our encouragement, though perhaps it kept him going...
