Well its finally here, tomorrow 19/5/12 sees the start of the Olympic torch route that travels the length of the UK.
in my town the flame will pass through about 12:20 pm and is set to be a big occasion.
All the car parks have free parking on the day to encourage a good turn out.
the towns garden department have been grafting furiously making the route (and town) look its best.
the kids have their flags ready and don't really know what all the fuss is about,
for me , i love the olympics, i was never a big sportsman but my sporting claim to fame in my little pond is that i broke the fourth year shot put record of our school, it was quite an old school and my record stood for around ten years, i also won the javelin that day
, came second in the hundred meters race, and our team won the relay race
i won the victor ludorum
so let the games begin.... in 70 days 11 hours, not that im counting London 2012 Olympic torch route - map | Sport | guardian.co.uk http://www.london2012.com/
