My Day of glory, one year on


It is one year since I ran the London Marathon. It was the most moving, exhilarating, exhausting and above all, humbling experience of my life. An emphatic triumph of human spirit. My prayers and good wishes are with the 34,000 runners today who are about to undertake a life-affirming journey. Good luck, y'all. Rise again.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
you may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.

-from 'Still I rise' by Maya Angelou

I remember seeing your London marathon pics sometime back. I was in Boston for the 2004 marathon. I didnt run but it was an awesome spectacle. I hope to run the Boston marathon someday.
