A Weekend Diary

…words and images from England's green and pleasant land…

London Marathon 2013

I’ve chosen the first photo below for a couple of reasons; firstly because it’s a good representation of the number of London Marathon runners who were wearing black ribbons in remembrance of those who suffered in Boston, and secondly, because at the extreme right of the photo, is a runner representing the Mornington Chasers Running Club, from Camden Town in north London, which was the running club I belonged to when I ran my own Marathon, around Loch Rannoch in Scotland, on the 21 June 1992. For me, running one Marathon was enough (in a time of 3 hours 56 minutes and 26 seconds!), but it’s a memory I’ll always cherish :).
