Ealing half marathon, Sunday 28 September. I wasn’t running – no way – but went down to Lammas Park to see my friend Jon finish. A lovely warm day- maybe even a bit hot for the runners. Nice for the spectators though!
All the runners wore yellow ribbons in honour of the missing teenager Alice Gross, from nearby Hanwell. Her disappearance has had a huge impact on the local community. We live in hope that she will be found alive and well, while there is no clear evidence to the contrary. There are yellow ribbons everywhere.
