Some of the finest athletes the World has to offer were on display. Showing strength, courage, skill, passion and a devotion to their performance through adversity and sacrifice. Challenging competition from all over the globe, striving to be the best that they could be and in a manner that I could only dream of. Awe inspiring would be one way to describe it.

Enough about the Olympics, let's tell you about last night's Mile. The irony is that most of our runners had sat and watched sport for two weeks and lost some of their fitness. I didn't run last night but I include myself in this! As a result, only one PB delivered which belonged to Nick Rowe.
However, it was great to be back again and was great to catch up with people discussing the main stories from London 2012. Thanks to Heather Martingell for being 'Name Taker', Paul Martingell for taking photos and Dave Wilson for being back up timer and 'Half Way Time Shouter'.
Photos are here.

The gates are still currently shutting at 9pm, hopefully they bring this time forward to the more appropriate 8:30pm next week as it's getting too dark otherwise. We will be looking to start at 8:30pm next week nonetheless.

Before I go, I demand we give Andy 'EPO' Wingate a urine test.
