London Marathon 2010

This years London Marathon began more than a week ago with marathon efforts to get all the elite runners into London due to the no fly zone in the UK as a result of the volcano. The organisers chartered a plane to get those stranded in East Africa to London.

The elite women was won by Liliya Shobukhava in 2hrs 22 mins.
Bezunesh Bekele Sertsu shown here came in 4th at 2.23.17

Competition time on aglimpseoflondon tomorrow!

Well done to all these sporty people.
I seriously could not do that!! ;-)
(We had a couple of photos of a young English princess in todays VG- the first royal - who had done the run.)
Anyway, it looks like you had a good day for the marathon.

Great photo, Mo. I watched it on TV - it's fun watching other people being energetic whilst vegging out oneself! But I love the atmosphere you can sense - and the thousands raised for charity too.

I will be running Stockholm Marathon June 5.

London Marathon is one of my running highs.

I hope I will participate again in 2019
