On the run

I went to watch this year to cheer on my friend and was struck by how many people (36,000 to be precise) are willing to put themselves through the pain for charities close to their hearts. It was great to see and I felt extremely proud of him and the other 35,999 people. So if you're thinking of running next year and are lucky enought to get a place, there are lots of charities that would love your support.

And just in case you were wondering, he finished in 3 hours 48 minutes.  And no I didn't compete. He just let me wear his medal and pretend!
