Miles: 26; Units: 24

A quieter week on the running front - for me - as I dropped my Long run on Sunday. Today's post has to be all about the excellent London Marathon. I was spectating this time, watching from about mile 24.5 on the Embankment. I am always truly awestruck by the marathon - what a great event, and one that is, almost without question, about everything that is good in the world - personal endeavour, charity and happiness. What, to use the phrase, is not to like? I had the pleasure of cheering on several friends who took part, as well as the 30 runners for PDSA.

Wine of the week was pretty awesome too - Chianti Classico Riserva 1999, Casa Sola. Richly, brambly/cherry nose, utterly silky palate, soft and with plenty of body, and such length on the palate. As Janet said - makes you wonder why people are so down on Chianti. I must agree!
