This morning I chaired the weekly management board meeting (delayed by one day because of yesterday’s Bank Holiday) with more than a little pride. Four of the participants, including the Secretary General and the Deputy Secretary General, had run Sunday’s 20 k, and we also had our star runner, Johannes Kind (1 hour and 18 minutes!) at the table. Now, that’s a pretty fit management board by any standards (and that is not to mention the deputy director who did 70 k on her bike on the same day). ‘Mens sana in corpore sano,’ as Juvenal put it. I do like to think that we are, collectively, a healthy administration with a good work-life balance. Nobody can say that the top brass doesn’t set a good example!
