Debbie does...round the world
25th Apr 2010 - London day trips
London Marathon

I woke with great excitement today as the London marathon is on – supposedly the greatest in the world AND it runs on my road – right outside the building. Our 7th floor balcony looks out over the course. I just missed the start of the women’s race on TV but saw the start of the men’s and then the other 37000 people running. It is truly a long way they run – 26 miles – 42 kms. Anyway I alternated between the TV and the balcony and managed to get photos of the first wheelchair man who was way ahead and sadly got 2 punctures and ended up third. Saw the first women’s group coming thru and the NZ woman who got 8th and then the first men – the frontrunner got first. It was so exciting – then watched the rest on TV and continued to go outside once the masses started going past. There has been music going on all day, DLR has been busy, lots of noise and people cheering. Such a fun day and I didn’t even leave the apartment
