Shirts for sale – A Street Seller hangs out his wares in Asuncion

A multitude of sports shirts were on sale here in the center of Asuncion. Paraguay is an interesting place. I still find it strange that the capital city closes at midday on a Saturday.

2015 London Marathon – not long to go

It is but a few weeks before the next London marathon. We will be able to watch in their 10s of 1000s the very dedicated people of all different abilities try to get round the grueling course. Here is a photo from last year’s even with many people to be seen on each side of the road going in both directions. And the band played on.

Running Towards the Bastille 2014 Paris Marathon

This is a photo I took on the 6th of April as a large number of runners were heading towards the Bastille in Paris. Running Towards the Bastille 2014 Paris marathon We didn’t see a lot of the event but at the various parts of the course that we did see there didn’t appear to be the public support for it that you would see in London. It was a fairly nice Spring day but despite running past many apartments with balconies the balconies were generally empty. Given the beauty of Paris it is a shame that the event isn’t better supported by the public. The organizers had done a lot of work and there was live music at places. And 50,000 runners registered for the event. Copyright Junagarh Media, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk.

Great Smile at the 22nd Mile of the 2014 London Marathon

The London Marathon is a great spectator event and the large crowds make it a superb event for the dedicated runners who flog themselves round the length of the course. I saw the 2014 Paris Marathon and the support was very low key and it is basically runners, yes I know that they are all runners, but there is very little in the way of dressing up for the event. It took place in early April and there just doesn’t seem to be that much interest in it. But then again they do have the finish of the world’s greatest cycle race. And maybe the event will grow anyway. Girl in Hot Outfit Runs the 2014 London Marathon with the Biggest Smile Well back to the London event of 2014 and there I was at mile 22 when this girl just beamed as I was taking a photo. She must have been extremely hot in this outfit and still had four miles to go but she was obviously still enjoying it. Copyright Junagarh Media, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk.
