On Sunday we went on a run through London starting at the Temple Tube stop all the way to Earl’s Court. I should say run/walk. The entire journey was around 4 miles (we didn’t take a straight shot), which is a little far for me. Running through crowds can be difficult at times; however, seeing all the sights is inspirational.
Not the most beautiful spot to start a run. However, I was already nervous about the four miles so I didn’t want to venture further.
Made it to the Eye, the first landmark
I feel like a salmon swimming upstream.
Big Ben. I’m getting tired already and am settling for a lackluster shot. Not a good sign.
This guard and horse don’t want to look at me.
Took a shortcut through here. Not sure which museum this is. The Guards?
The Mall is closed to cars on Sunday.
Love the hat!
I couldn’t do this job. What happens if you have to sneeze?
Buckingham Palace. I think I’m halfway home.
So thirsty. Need to rehydrate. I also had a glass of water. What can I say, it was Sunday and beautiful out. Time for a beer.
And to watch a few minutes of a football match on the telly. Photo taken in the Back Room Bar–the place I reviewed on Friday
As we ran through the tunnel near the Hyde Park Tube stop I saw this tent. The bottle says pension plan. This breaks my heart.
Love is in the air in Hyde Park
This guy thinks I’m bonkers for running. Photo taken in Kensington Gardens
Another shot of the Mandarin. Such a beautiful creature.
Thanks goodness I made it to Holland Park. Only one mile to go!
Took a little breather in the Japanese Garden in Holland Park.
It took longer than I thought it would. Maybe we shouldn’t have stopped for a beer. Yet, it was tasty and that’s what weekends are for. So far the training for my hike in Malaysia is going well. Three more weeks!
