My Best Friend: The First 10K

On Bank Holiday Monday May 27th ( THE ONLY SUNNY DAY OF THE YEAR SO FAR.....) Sophie ran the BUPA 10k in central London. I sweated hard at the sidelines and saw Mo Farah, several men dressed as toilets, a crocodile and a man in a thong (can't bear to think about the chaffing!). And then Soph powered past looking confident and cool. Her time was 54 minutes and 46 seconds. There were 11,000 runners and Sophie came in 873rd Female and 97th in her age group. Fantastic!

Time to change the headlines

As I got onto the train this morning, I came face to face with an issue of The Metro on the seat in front of me. A giant headline in bold print, “Rape: The figures that shame Britain.” What I found was a short article illustrating some pretty abysmal statistics. Of the estimated 473,000 instances of sexual offences that occurred this past year in the UK, less than 54,000 were recorded by police, and of those recorded only 5,620 resulted in convictions.
