Day 259 The games

Today we were in newcastle. Tomorrow sees us tackle the great north run and before the run a pasta party is held on the banks on the tune river. Next to it is the great north city games also. We went by this today and it was quite a nice event.

The sun was shining and as we enjoyed our pasta we got to watch British and American athletes go head to head. There was a temporary race track laid out. Some of the athletes had even competed and win golds in the recent Olympics. We saw the pole vault, an event that I'd imagine requires a very high skill level and could be quite dangerous too...
