Marathon Mum. Marathon Man. Get the joke? Both feature obsessiveness, shady characters from Europe, lots of running, and most notably, torture. This online journal began as I trained for the 2005 London Marathon. I successfully finished the race, but MarathonMum lives on. After all, life as a mother isn't a sprint, it's a marathon.
On our way back from ComicCon, which probably deserves a picture itself, we passed this amazing sculpture in Canning Town. It was completely unexpected and lovely. From this angle, it looks to me like the Iron Giant is picking a leaf off the tree.
This beautiful surprise is one of the many reasons why I Love London.
