Lisbon half marathon chaos. Queue to get to the start.
Looking like a long day in Lisbon. Start in 30 minutes, hotel 2 miles from start, have been travelling to get here for 1 hour 45 minutes already and still can't see start. To make it worse it is 24 degrees and blazing sunshine (sorry England)
30000 Portugal residents all trying to get to the start, plus at least one mad Englishman. Makes the Great North Run look quiet.
Next report when I get to the finish (assuming I get to the start!)
