I'm feeling a mixture of excitement and terror as the London Marathon is now definitely back on. Emails and encouragements from Virgin and Mencap alerting me to the reality that it will be taking place in 210 days, 3 October 2021! are hitting my in box.
I started running in Madrid's El Retiro Park, in 2016, and have been running half and 10k's on and off ever since. Running the New York marathon has been the highlight of this running thing for me. It really is a great way to get to know a city and people you would otherwise never meet. Marathon running really can be for everyone.
Quoting Lord Coe;
'Sport is a universal language, building more bridges between people than anything else I can think of." Sebastian Coe
This year's London marathon really is going to be like no other.
"this is not going to be business as usual. this is business unusual." Sebastian Coe
