Canon 400D

Something came up...hence the delay in putting up the pics. Anyway, the day was 'perfect' weatherwise, but not for the runners as running 26 and a bit miles under the sun is not a favourable weather condition to run in as most found out. I too was having dizzy spells as I stood by the barriers to bring you these pictures. It was a hot day!

Congratulations to all who took are truly inspirational.

Now, the pics.....ENJOY!

There were other ways to break records and the 'chain-link gang' broke the world record for the most people to run the marathon whilst linked to each other.

Just had to show that we were there in full force to support our runners!

Departing the Mall....going home after a long day.

This one is for Nick! I passed by Leicester Square in London and I found them prepping for the premier of Spider Man 3. Unfortunately, I was a day early to snap the celebs.
