Eco - oh, I'm envious too!
Pete - Brrrrr, am not envious of you.
Another no training day but, I've had a lovely day. I don't know if you remember me saying that Gunpowder parkrun had been shortlisted for the Team London Volunteer Awards, but today was the day. So I headed into City Hall to meet up with my friends who help run it.
I'm sure these things would be boring if you had to do them frequently, but it was actually a really lovely few hours.They had some celebrities to give out the awards. I'm ashamed to say that not having a TV and having been brought up without TV I did not recognise Barbara Windsor but I did recognise Bear Grylls . Martine Wright who lost her legs in the London underground bombings and led the GB womens volleyball team in the 2012 paralympics was the speaker and she was brilliant. Whether you like Boris Johnson or not, you have to admit he is colourful and he and Barbara make a great double act! It was actually very moving to hear some of the amazing work that the winners of the different catagories are involved in. We didn't win but we had a great time and got a lovely certificate
