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.

This is a photo I took on the 6th of April as a large number of runners were heading towards the Bastille in Paris. 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.
