Inspiration & Disappointment in London

Wow!

If you're in need of inspiration, check out this article about Buster Martin, a 101-year-old London bloke who recently ran a half-marathon as part of his training program for the upcoming Flora London Marathon.

Again, I must say, Wow!

Also, London Marathon organizers have announced Paula Radcliffe's withdrawal from the April 13 event citing a toe tendon injury the 34-year-old world record holder sustained during training in Albuquerque, N.M.
“I am desperately disappointed that I have to pull out of this year’s race,” Radcliffe is quoted on the official Flora London Marathon website. “I love running in London and this race would have been the perfect test for me before the Olympic Games. But in marathon training there are no short cuts and there is simply not enough time to be in the shape I want to be in to run well in London. Now I must concentrate on being as well prepared as possible for Beijing.”
