Run London Run 4 of 6

Mile 12(right of Barrier)------------------------------Mile 21(left of Barrier)
  COMMITTED- Either Way!


I was medic-ing at the last London marathon and I will be posting a few images that I managed to take.

Sometimes in life, its hard to be patient in situations that are obviously challenging, particularly when it seems there is a long way to go. Its even more difficult when you see people you start a race with so far ahead and you know you cant realistically catch them. How depressing? What do you do though? Give up?, or continue knowing that ''the race is not for the swiftest'' etc

Whichever route you chose or wherever you find yourself, I feel its important to be fully committed to the cause at that present time. That way it doesn't matter who else is around you because you know you'll still be making the finish line which is the most important thing!

Another great sporting action shot, SAVO.

About the narrative, though...I always believed that the journey [months of early morning training runs, plus the actual final 42km journey on the day, were far more to be enjoyed and savoured than the actual crossing of the finish line. Reaching the destination always seemed more for the benefit of others...stuff for family and work friends to point to as some kind of justification for your anti-social behaviour of the past months or years.
SAVO: Anti-social behaiviour hahaha.
But I agree with you, either way though there remains some satisfaction for the fam or for you smile

Your words are so well taken, SAVO. It's the journey that counts, but the journey always has a finish line ahead, something for which to strive. I really like this series because it's a story about life itself.
SAVO: Thank you muchos Ginnie grin
Super determination by all, great capture Savosmile
SAVO: Cheers Linda
