11:54 UTC+01 - On Sunday I run the London marathon. If you're likely to be there I shall endevour to say hello. If I'm too focused on the (pain of) running then you might need to yell to get my attention. (I've been recommending people use 'Merlin' as a safe word:) I'm was going to suggest that those of us who are about go for food afterwards, but I might just need to heed home and recover. Comments/suggestions/encouragement welcome...
