The Marathon


London's marathon is one of the elite races in the world with nearly 250,000 applicants this year and approximately 40,000 running on the day.  This early part of the race shows the some the elite men and women passing the 20 mile mark.  (At this point both the winners of this group had crossed the finish line).

It is alway fun to see the biggest group of ordinary runners who raise thousands for charity and achieving personal goals.  It was so cold and windy I couldn't last the distance.  I have even greater admiration for those that ran yesterday, they didn't drop out.  Well done all of you!

I love big races like this. There was a broadcast from the London Marathon on television last night. I watched for 20 - 30 minutes.
