Olympic Torch

I wrote a piece for Wired Playbook about carrying the Olympic Torch, you can read it here

I wrote that post last night and today I would of added a little addendum.  After carrying the torch I wanted to give as many people as possible the opportunity to carry the torch.  So today I took it into a local blind charity that runs a play group for babies and toddlers with visual impairments.  Giving these children the opportunity to carry the torch really highlighted how lucky I had been to be selected.  I will remember that moment just as well as I remember the moment of carrying the torch itself.

I also gave my torch to my guide dog trainer today, so she can take it back home to share it with her daughter and family.  I really do want to share it with as many people as possible and plan on visiting numerous schools over the coming weeks.

However this friday I have surgery, in an effort to correct the issues raised by the last surgery I had! So hopefully in a week or two I will be back training and fighting fit!
