I was quite disappointed with the whole event to be honest.
Because of the crowds and the way the route twists and turns you don't get to take in much. It's definitely an event for the audience.
The best bit for me was around mile 4-6 when you're going past pubs with live bands and the roads are really wide.
Tower Bridge suddenly appears and then you're over it. Canary Warf takes ages to get to and there's nothing else to look at.
Then on the way back from Canary Wharf to Parliament Square there's not a lot to see.
I'm definitely a 500-1000 person event man. At 18-22 miles I want to be on my own looking at inspirational views not with thousands of people shouting my name and telling me I can do it. Lol.
Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner and know all these sights and maybe take them for granted.
In June I'll be doing another 'Monopoly Run' where we visit all the sites on the Monopoly board. We take our time, it's about 16miles and a great route.
I've done London. Next marathon will be in November and I have a plan...
