"Being at the rear of the London Marathon looking back at the start and realising that it is not disappearing nearly fast enough is a somewhat surreal but fascinating experience. It was not long before I was overtaken by the back marker car and the army of tractors, road sweepers, artic lorries with teams of people packing up the road barriers and mile marker stations. For all of you who wondered why I dropped off the Virgin tracker app after 10 km that was the reason."
