We went to see the London Marathon, in Greenwich. There were so many runners – 40,000 of them! Can you see them all behind me? There were six real Maasai warriors running too, it was the first time they had left their homeland. They were trying to raise $120,000 for a project: a well in their drought-ravaged village in Tanzania, and were running in shoes made from car tyres and not drinking any water whilst running. Wow.

There are lots of different ways we can help Africa – click here to see a great post on different ways you can help.

We went to the start line of the race. Mum was hoping Ian wasn’t too nervous. He ran for the National Deaf Children’ Society (he completed it in a very respectable 4 hours 17 minutes and 40 seconds – well done Ian!). Can you see the big TV screen the runners have got. I wonder if it will show Dog Borstal?
