Had a great day at the athletics yesterday taking in both morning and evening, with a wee wander round the east end to see the changes in between. Very efficient getting in and out of the stadium too, though a few more buses would have helped move people.
Had our own wee Inverness Harriers cheering section for Rachel MacKenzie in the high jump. Just a pity she missed our. Did mean I got to chat with Graham Laing, who was 7th in the 1982 Commonwealth Games marathon.
Evening was great, getting to see 3 athletes who are easily the best in the world at what they do in Kirani James, Valerie Adams and David Rudisha (even if he was a bit slow this year). you could mayby add Greg Rutherford to that too.
Brussels was fun. Got to do a long run in the Ardennes and a shorter one around the battle monuments at Waterloo as highlights. Lots of good Belgian beer too which will slow me up tomorrow in the Devil O' the Highlands.
Very hot run in Suffolk this morning. Now in pleasantly air conditioned Gatwick en route to Brussels for a few days. Supposed to be hot there tomorrow then cooler and rainy. Might make my weekend running in the Ardennes more bearable.
The rumour mill indicated that she might have had a support crew at a spot where they were banned. There was a stern lecture before the prize giving about obeying the rules on support, I guess people doing the wrong thing could impact their permissions to continue the event.
And apologies to FFB who I failed to go and talk to again.
