London Marathon – Water Relief

As it was the London Marathon today and I didn’t have a chance to go and take photos I thought I’d dig up some I took a few years ago. 2007 to be precise. I remember it was quite a hot day. I positioned myself quite close to shower tunnels which I had never seen before.

I was fascinated by the totally different reactions I saw from the runners. Some where totally relieved to be cooled down for a bit, some looked like they arrived in heaven and some were just so exhausted that even that rain of ice cold water couln’t ease their pain anymore.

My deepest respect for everyone who puts him or herself through that incredible physical and mental challenge.
