Sunday 17th April, 2011 – The London marathon is a huge sporting event attracting a number of professional and international marathon runners from across the world.

There are thousands of people like you and me, raising money for charity and running the mammoth distance of 26 miles!!

I normally watch the televison coverage, but to actually go into the city and watch the thousands of people, unified and taking on the task in hand was pretty amazing.

I try – when I can to run regularly. I think its a great way to excercise and keep fit.

One of my friends, Bhavesh Mistry ran the marathon for a second time. It was great catching a glimpse of him a few miles from the end. Inspired to do the marathon… possibly.

I hope to check out the process once applications open for 2012. :)
