The great thing about jet lag, is that getting up at 6am is not a problem, as you've already been awake for 2 hrs!
Having been tipped off that Arnie Schwarzenegger was going to pass the Olympic torch flame to Seb Coe I set off in the dark with my running shoes to Stanley park. All was quiet until I turned the corner on the waterfront, when I could hear the distant music from the party bus. At least i knew I was heading in the right direction.
The crowds grew, the music got louder and it was still not even 6.30am!
I ran through the crowds to find Seb Coe waiting at the lighthouse, casually sitting on the wall chatting to the press.
And then the Terminator arrived! The crowd went wild. The torch exchange, a hug and Seb Coe was on his way... What an amazing atmosphere!
