Sal runs the London Marathon

My best mate Sal features highly in my running story and is today running the London marathon and has to do it in under 5 hours in order to qualify for the Comrades 90 km Ultramarathon in South Africa in June. She has been running since 09.30 GMT, so is coming up for 90 minutes, ie probably at mile 10.

I am watching the footage on tv and the start always makes me tear up - We ran it together in 2001. And I rank it as one of the best achievements of my life. If I find some photos, I will scan and upload them.

But for now, Go Sally, Go Sally!!
