More than just a sporting event, the London Marathon is the world's longest street party. Roads along the route come alive with bands, cheering crowds, entertainers and 30,000 pairs of feet hitting the tarmac along the 26.2 mile course."
This sounds like a great race (click on London Marathon for the link)
I ran across a blog post about 8 women from Japan that will be running the London Marathon (London, England). You don't hear too much about runners from Japan.... Japanese ladies kick some serious ass!
p.s. It did not rain during my half marathon. Yippee. It was cool and over cast... perfect weather. I had fun and was very pleased to see that my chip time was under the 2 hour mark (just barely). I am hoping that my legs will be working better for the next 1/2 in a couple weeks.
