Day 1 in London dusted. Seriously warm in city.

Expo was grand, in early and decided to take that cable car and Thames clipper back into city, only a £10 and easy site seeing!

Shared the cable car with some yanks who it turned out was judge Mitchell the guy behind the Skid Row Marathon documentary that anyone who listens to Martahon Talk will know off. Launching the documentary over here this weekend and will be in Ireland too he says. Very interesting story.

Good luck to everyone.

Took the cable car and boat back from the city as well. Great distraction for the kid and we could get a drink on the boat. Didn't meet the judge, but did just see a 12 minute long segment covering Skid Row Marathon that he was interviewed for on BBC News 24.

We did spot Martin Yelling in Starbucks as we arrived at the Expo though.

Good luck to everyone tomorrow hopefully the weather doesn’t impact on you too much, you should get some relief as you turn right onto tower bridge, it’s usually a bit of a wind tunnel. It’s mad to think that two years ago they warned us about the possibility of snow and now it’s the severe heat you guys have to worry about.

Same puzzle here. Was hoping for sub 3 attempt but have to factor in past experiences of going for it in hot conditions......it didn’t end well!!!! I’m thinking of going in out at what will be my GFA time for next year which is 3:05, if I’m going well I’ll push on
Hope those lunch time showers show up early!

Keitany and Dibaba are flying. Keitany up on Radcliffe's record schedule.

The men have started at an insane pace!

I'd say that push from Mo to claw back to that lead pack hurt! Reality check for him on how experienced and strong the elite field for London is.
