26.2 miles of pain….and rain
The thousands who ran and the millions who cheered them on.. they endured it all…the rain, an early start on a Sunday and packed Tube stations. Worth it, I’d say…even for short people like myself who had to search endlessly for a empty spot by the railings to catch a glimpse of the passersby (runners) and to satisfy my camera’s needs.
The costumes, both athletes and spectators, and the bands tilted the balance in the earthlings’ favour after the drizzle had threatened an uneven contest.
Felt really nice just being there..amongst the fun-lovers. Been ages since we witnessed something like this…
Hats off to all runners. Remarkable job. And thanks to all spectators who made it a carnival event (myself including :D)
