Less than a week until the big day now, all the hard work has been done and it's just a case of making sure I'm ready to race next Sunday. I did some nice runs over the weekend, on Saturday we trained up by the start of the marathon at Greenwich park and on Sunday I ran from Stratford through the Olympic park back to central London, the Olympic stadium is really impressive and we are planning on taking a tour of it in the next few weeks. This week just some easy running with a light session on Tuesday evening.
We had some of the Run-Fast team running at the Newham 10km on Sunday getting second in the mens race (loosing out on the win by the width of a vest) and the winner in the womens race. The winning times weren't particularly quick just over 30 for the men and just over 34 for the women. We also had two guys racing a half marathon out in Austria and they came 2nd and 3rd again not with particularly quick times. Next week there are lots of races we have people racing in Germany and France with our two best half marathon guys (Edwin Kipyego and Sammy Kigen, both 61min best times) looking for fast times in Nice.

On a side note i've been getting some Swahili lessons from Gordon and actually I'm learning more here than I did in Kenya!
