After the training, injuries and fear of doing our first marathon we both ran and completed it. The London Marathon was an amazing experience with around 736,000 people attending (36,000 of those were runners) the atmosphere was electric. Street parties lined the roads, people hung out of their windows to cheer and a waves of support came from the sidelines every step of the way. Crossing the finish line felt fantastic, finally completing a marathon in itself is a big achievement for us coming from being able to run for about 30 seconds at a time just a few years ago!
We have so far managed to raise just under £1500 for Leukaemia CARE by running the marathon, thank you to all our donators and this amount is still rising. If you would like to donate to this worthy cause, you can do so using our Just Giving page.
Even though we were there to run the marathon, we couldn’t help but take a camera. London is like a sweet shop for a street photographer and while we didn’t get a lot of time we did manage to grab a few on our journey.
And here’s a photo of us right after the marathon with our medals!
