Along Pall Mall, London Marathon 2013

This past Sunday was a perfect day for the 33rd London Marathon. John wasn’t selected to run this year so we went out to cheer on the 34,631 runners. We took the bus to Trafalgar Square then walked down Pall Mall to the finish line. Prince Harry gave out the medals and attracts quite a crowd on his own, let alone all the runners and spectators, so we decided the 25 mile marker was a better viewing spot then the finish line.

London sure knows how to cheer on these wonderful athletes ~ especially in the wake of the Boston Marathon tragedy. No doubt Madrid’s Rock ‘n Roll Marathon next week will be just as exciting and John will be running in that one.
