in London

Keep on running

After weeks of looking forward to the big event, disappointment ensued when the first night of the London JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge was cancelled due to a weather warning from the Met Office. In the end, the rain didn’t really start until well after dark but I can understand why they pulled the plug; I’m sure they wouldn’t want to be liable if someone hurt themselves after a warning had been issued.

The wind itself was pretty bad – at lunchtime I saw a Starbucks table umbrella lift three storeys in the air and come crashing down on an adjacent table so I can only guess what Battersea Park looked like.

I took part in the Challenge last year in London and the year before that in New York City and on both occasions had a great time. I guess there’s always next year.

If any of you had sponsored me to raise money for Community Links, I won’t be collecting it, but if you wish to make a donation anyway that would be great!
