Preparing for the London Marathon

My daughter Cally is taking part in this year's London Marathon in aid of the World Wildlife Fund. This is a huge task for her as she is an inexperienced runner. The interview below in which she tells us about her preparation was originally posted on The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy blog and I thought I would share it with you all. :-) A beginner runner's account of Marathon training
On Sunday 13th April, the 34th edition of the Virgin Money London Marathon will take place. The 26-mile route, which starts in Greenwich Park and Blackheath and ends in The Mall, attracts elite athletes from all around the world, as well as thousands of runners raising money for their favourite charities.

Origami art

Here are a few pictures from a street project that my daughter Cally Lathey and her fellow Central St Martin's textile students did outside St Paul's Cathedral in London last week.

It was a covert project, so they had to get to the phone box at 6am. It drew a pretty big crowd and made a lot of people smile. Howeverm it would appear that the police were not so keen on it and ordered the council to remove it. When the council worker arrived, he liked the design and even posed for photos with it, one of which was published in the Evening Standard.

I love what they did; and being "eco" students, they removed and recycled all the paper. I am pleased to announce that no telephone boxes were harmed in the making of this art. Move over Banksy!
