After watching the London Marathon for years on TV, I was delighted to be invited to a breakfast reception, followed by viewing the finishing line as the winners crossed it.

When we were led to our seats I couldn’t believe quite how close we were to the finishing line, positioned just meters away where we joined the Lord Mayor of Westminster and Mayor of Southwark.
