10am this morning I can hear cheering, the runners from the Cardiff Half Marathon are making their way up my road. These are the first of 18,000 to make their way round the 13 mile course laid out for them on the streets of Cardiff. It was like the Olympics had come again – Just this time I had a front seat.
I was tired just watching them, its lucky my house was just there, I was able to cook my breakfast and brew a trusty cup of tea to keep me going! We tried desperately to cheer on everyone, but people just kept on coming. After a while we had to make the executive decision to start cheering for those in costumes, I can’t remember how many gorrillas, Batmen, Robins, Spidermen, Bannanas, Kermit the Frogs etc etc I’ve seen this morning. Just so many, but for so many good causes. Well done to all who ran! Amazing achievement!
