Seems like yesterday

It's been five years since I ran the London Marathon. It's something I never fail to bring up, even in a casual conversation which might go like this.

You: Nice day, isn't it?
Me: Yes, a most pleasant day to go running.
You: Yes, did you hear about what happened to that ship that was attacked by pirates?
Me: Pirates? Bet they never go running.
You: They threatened to kill all on board if they weren't paid a ransom.
Me: And if they are killed, they can certainly never go running. Did I tell you about the time I ran the London Marathon and someone came dressed as a pirate?
As you probably guessed, I'm darned proud of having run the 26.2 mile course. Here are some pics. (Rest assured I will do the same year after year. Write about my day of glory that is, not run)

Hats off to you madam! 42.195 km is an awfully long distance. Its simply heroic to run a full marathon. I cant think of running 5 kms non-stop, let alone completing the marathon.

Great achievement, worth writing about, quite a few times.

Regards
Madhav

Well, I'd do the same if I had run it. I can't imagine ever running it, though. Maybe I could talk about it even without running it.
