I know how the Queen feels!

Take it from me saying hello hundreds of times in one day to people you’ll never see again is a bit wearing.

This long queue of runners and some walkers were by and large quite polite.

One or two were “in the zone” and didn’t hear me dinging my bell, but there was a mutual respect for the muppet on a bike.

I still can’t believe that more than 1152 people gave up their free time to walk up and down and across country for FIFTY TWO miles!

Maybe some are out there now on their hands and knees crawling towards Winchester, hoping for a pint and a good NHS hospital?

Perhaps I should add a general observation?  There were a few men out front, but most of the quick ones were wiry women, all skin and bones.

The further I got towards the tail of the field the typical size of athlete increased, as was the propensity to wear injury relieving bandages.

Nope.  I can’t see me doing  double marathon in one day.
