Sierra Leone Marathon 2014

20th May Training Run

What a great training run we've just had. Thank you to everyone who came. We gathered at Speakers Corner and after a quick espresso for those who'd had one to many beers watching last nights Champions Leaque final we were all on our way. We did one lap of Hyde Park taking in Marble Arch, Kensington Garden and the Albert Hall and then had a quick stop to watch a number of regiments of the Cavalry give a memorial service for all those that had fought and died during past wars. Parades of marching bands, bowler hats and medals made it feel very special. Before our legs had time to sieze up we were off over the road to Green Park and then down to Buckingham Palace, along to St James's Square and into St James's Park. From there we headed past Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliment and then ran along the embankment of the Thames. We finished the group run at Tower Hill and those wanting to run more than the 9 or so miles we'd covered carried on towards their final destinations. Sometimes I forget just how wonderful runinng in this city can be. 

It was great to have a chance to chat and make friends with others before the big day. In fact, it was so good that I'm going to do it again next Saturday 26th May at 10am. Anyone interested? Someone say yes before the buzz of the run wears off and I change my mind!
