London Marathon Reflections

As part of my Edinburgh University Placements this Summer I had a placement in the Community this was with a district Nursing department in NHS Lothian. This placement was particularly inspirational, so much so that it inspired me to lace up my trainers and train for the world renowned London Marathon race. I had signed up to this as I had personally experienced others nearest and dearest go through terminal illness. The race started in Greenwich and ended up in Buckingham Palace and the finish line was located in Pall Mall. A race that was promising to be one in a class of its own. The London Marathon certainly did not disappoint! It was a truly exciting and thrilling race with spectators cheering you on what seemed like every meter of the race route!
