London Marathon 2017

I'm focusing on people's Next Steps for the rest of the year and so visiting the start of the Marathon seemed the perfect topic to restart my blog with. We stood at the Red Start and it took 28 minutes for all the runners who'd been lining up in Greenwich Park to pass us - and what a fantastic, amazing bunch of people we saw - congratulations everyone!  

We've seen the wonderful KAROKE MAN many times, Craig was a new spot for us this year.

I loved this moment when a runner spotted his cheering friend in the crowd and stopped for a supportive hug. I snapped it and, after everyone passed, sent it to the friend who immediately sent it to the runner's family.

We've watched at the Red Start for 14 years now and so far, there's always been a Scooby Doo - thanks Runner 51592!
