Good morning! It’s the birthday of philosopher Immanuel Kant (1724), eccentric actor-director John Waters (1946) and a curiously large number of footballers.
It’s also the London Marathon today and KV Switzer is running.
Kathrine Switzer (1947- ) USA athlete, campaigner. First woman to run the Boston Marathon, 1967. Attacked during the race by an official trying to stop her, she finished and struck a blow for women’s equality. Now 71 she is running the London Marathon under her Boston number 261. pic.twitter.com/BW5lorDav2

Hey it’s a sea of red as I collect my bib number for the @VirginMoney @LondonMarathon and later visit the suffragette statue and think of those women, who like all of us, defy the status quo! Wish us luck today! #261Fearless #adidasWomen #adidasRunning #Bose pic.twitter.com/ayaczvKqwS

Finally, on to Poland where Hili is strategising.
Hili: I have to hide.
Hili: So I could jump out suddenly.
Hili: Muszę się schować.
Hili: Żeby potem nagle wyskoczyć.
