London Marathon day

We're lucky enough to live on the Blue start, which means the women's, wheelchair, elite men's and many club and fun runners go past our door. For us the day starts quietly like this:

And after the last runner goes by the cleanup starts. The road stays shut (and quiet) for a while longer though. It's an amazing operation, as is the number of runners that finish many of which will be thinking of those in Boston.

For us, the London Marathon ends with a fry-up and tracking friends progress through the course! It's a tradition!!
