The London Marathon

I've managed to catch a glimpse of the London Marathon for every year I've lived in London (this is my third) and I've never ceased to be amazed at the sight of 35,000 runners pounding their way through some of London's most scenic routes.  But this was the first time I knew someone actually runnning in the race, which made it extra special.  Lauren finished in an amazing time of 3 hours, 51 minutes, 47 seconds - a mind-blowing achievement.  Although I have no plans on running next year's event (I'm having enough trouble preparing for the Asics British London 10k I'm doing in July), Udita sent me an email yesterday saying she was thinking of entering the ballot for the 2011 London Marathon, so I just might be there again next year cheering her on.  Think my next goal after the 10k will be a half marathon and then possibly a full marathon in a couple of years.  Baby steps, people, baby steps. 

In the meantime, congratulations, Lauren!
