No disappointment here

Today is the day thousands of wannabe marathon runners get a commiseration magazine from the organisers of the Virgin London Marathon. I know of only two people so far who have got a place through the ballot but if people really want to do it there will be thousands of charity placements.

For me, there is no disappointment as I didn't apply, in fact it didn't even hit my conscience until I saw Tweets and comments in web forums today. I am no humbug as the VLM creates thousands of pounds for charities it is I just hate the fervour surrounding it as though the London Marathon is the only one in the world.

Good luck to those who have got a place and I hope you carry on running after the event
