Dont Let the Bombers Win the Marathon

Today's Boston Marathon bombing is disgusting - an easy target.

To see the pictures of the aftermath, the once finely tuned bodies, broken and bloodstained breaks my heart.

Having run 2 marathons in the past I know the thoughts that will be running round the heads of all those taking part - euphoria mixed with agony - why here and why now?

The USA authorities will use all it's powers to get the terrorists, and deliver the appropriate punishment.

The fear is now the impact that this outrage will have on other fund-raising events, in particular the London Marathon next weekend.

Let's not also forget that the UK is staging a massive public event on Wednesday, namely ex-Prime Minister Maggie Thatcher's funeral.

For today our thoughts are with those in Boston.
