Mile 23 – London Marathon

This post is dedicated to the 36,000 individuals who ran the London Marathon today, raising millions of pounds for charity in the process (over half a billion pounds have been raised since the first London Marathon in 1981), and the 70,000 spectators who came out in force to support them, cheer them on, yell, offer orange segments to outstretched passing hands, line the streets and generally make this part of London feel as much like a festival as a major sporting event – all less than a week since the fatal bombings at the Boston Marathon. The following images were taken around mile 23, on Tower Hill and Lower Thames Street.
