myself last year, given how great the crowds were, that I would go and cheer-on this year's Edinburgh Marathon runners ...
... well, I cycled from Shandon to Portobello Prom. earlier this morning, met up with a couple of colleagues, and spent the morning supporting the thousands of marathon-runners as they streamed along the Promenade ;-)
I actually arrived just in time to catch a snap of the front three as they charged (literally!) through the 5-mile mark :-)
We stayed on the Prom. until everyone had run through, and it was just great to see such a flow of people all doing something so personally wonderful :-))
Congratulations to each and every one of them!
