Event: Virgin London Marathon 2013 Venue: Central London Date: 19th & 21st April 2013 (19th Press Day & 21st Marathon Day)
A series of images taken during the 2013 Virgin London Marathon. On 19th April 2013 was the Press Day for the Paralympic Athletes taking part in the marathon and those who dared run the marathon in costumes in order to break the Guinness Book of World Records.
On marathon day, 21st April 2013, elite runners, celebrities, record breakers, charity runners, etc., took to the streets of London to take part in one for the most recognised events of the sporting calendar. This year’s event was special as it came in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings that happened weeks prior to the event. As a show of solidarity, the Virgin London Marathon we ahead without any major incidents reported and with record crowds cheering on the runners along the route as a show of defiance and support for a the greater good of mankind.
Of all the images I took on the day, this one of Tsegaye Kebede has got to be my favourite. It just sums up the feelings of the day.
As far as reflections of a year gone by, 2012 for me has been a very weird one and in a good way for the most part. Looking back, one thing I do wish I had was time to do more stuff. No regrets though as some of what I achieved, will change my current outlook of life.
Rather than bore you with the details, I will just let the WordPress Annual Review do the talking for me, but I will reflect on two milestones that made 2012 a stellar year for me.
