Posted: 9 August 2007

Read what our FLM finishers have been up to over the last three months in our "Where are they now?" reader updates.

Relive the highs and lows of the 2007 Flora London Marathon with this awe-inspiring collection of reader stories.

The agony and the achievement, the euphoria and the emotion – let these firsthand FLM accounts guide you through the unique, heart-warming journey that is Britain’s most famous race. Submitted by runners of all ages and abilities (and a handful of supporters too), each story is just as uplifting as the last.

For now though, sit back and enjoy the read. But be warned, after these tales, you might just find yourself making plans for 2008!
