After Boston Bomb, London Marathon 2013

London Marathon'13 (1)A09A2758

Week after the atrocity in Boston Bomb, London Marathon said to have started after

one minute silence to remember the victims over there.  

When I got the marathon course in the afternoon, top group has long gone,

so that what I saw was the lots of fun-runners and Fund-rising Charity runners.

So that, many runners wearing Black ribbon to remember the victims in Boston.

By the way, center photo, a man wearing yellow shirts with Scottish Sikh logo is

not a Wolf-man, Sikh doesn’t shave or cut their hair.

Photo left, a lady of St’ John’s Ambulance was offering, was a Vaseline

to smooth the abrasion, no sweets.

A kind of fun-loving  Anarchist group, Space Hijacker happened to have their head-quarter

next to the Marathon course and found an excuse to play 12 kw power loud music and

to have a BBQ party.  😀

I don’t have enough idea, what those people to do with marathon.  🙂  —– Still, what ever

the excuse, it was a very fine day and to enjoy a weekend, it was a great fun.

And for the runners, it was not only a challenge,  but it was the great learning process, since,

in a process of actually doing, it all comes with the hard fact.  Unlike a thinking or imagining

something, Doing will teach a person with 100% reality and often with pain.  Any wishful

thinking or Ego would be smashed and learn the reality WHO I AM.   And it’s deep.

      Thank you Lemony.
      They are just snap shots. Anybody there could have taken more or less the same photos. 🙂
      It was an excuse to go out and see the friends and so on 😀

    Fun runners are the best, Yoshizen. Good to see a fun marathon too.

      Funny contradiction is, it is much harder to be a fun-runner.
      Unlike streamlined sports runner who is wearing minimum, they are carrying
      heavy costume in order to catch the eyes and the TV camera.
      (I saw a Japanese daddy wearing girl’s pink dress, but missed the shot. 😀 )
