The Brussels 20km run has started. You can stand at one location for AGES and still have runners coming by. Over 60,000 would be a fair estimate. The police are out and about, but the best have to be the bicycle police. And they get the better end of the job, being able to escort top runners, move to new locations.
Last night, the runners must have had some trepidation. The weather was touching 30c and being in the sun was punishment. But there was a storm this morning and the temperature broke to something tolerable.
