2012 London Marathon

The London Marathon, is one of the largest marathons in the World. The 2012 course came pretty close to my flat as it looped around Canary Wharf and back to the city. I took a walk down to Narrow Street which was packed with spectators, some to support friends and family, others just using the event as an excuse for a midday drink. The marathon is something I’d never contemplate doing, so I have great respect for the runners who make a great commitment and some personal sacrifices to achieve the distance.
