took place just last week, in the City we all know so well.
Luckily at around the 3.30 marker point (which is late for my dad) we spotted him. Given he was running with his ipod, a torn tendon and hip, he was more focused on finishing than the crowds. So we took lots of pictures (as proof that we saw him).

It was inspiring to watch crowds cheer, and people speed up near the finish line after hearing their name called out. Multiple people even collapsed with only 350 yards to go (which was heartbreaking to watch), and then had to get pushed in a wheel chair to the finish line (if they were deemed medically stable).
Once the marathon was over, we headed over to Oxford street. Which was filled with touristy shops, so then we headed over to Knightsbridge where Harrods is. I also managed to locate my way around today based on Starbucks, and was shocked to see how different the cafes totally are there. It's just proof how every company needs to adapt to the country that they are located in, and adapt to their target market. That being said they did have frappachinos, and instead of a bagel I opted for some marshmallow sprinkle stick. Yum!
