Thought some of you runners and supporters might like this project: 26miles.org.uk

26 writers were asked to team up with a friend and walk one specific mile on the route of the London Marathon. A 27th writer got lucky and strolled the last 350-odd yards. They were all told to dig around for a story, compose a poem, or simply report what they saw. Some hooked up with photographers and filmmakers.

The first story about about a conflict at Blackheath is on the site now and others wil be published a mile at a time on weekdays from Thursday 14th March to Friday 19th April.

I'm bumping and linking to today's story about mile 22-23 26miles.org.uk in the hope that it helps someone through a rough mile or so.

John Simmons who wrote it has coached me in my writing and gave me confidence in my ability to do what i do for a living. He's also run at least one marathon that I know of.

Got something to say?
