My London-based mate Romit Basu ran a half marathon on Sunday. He reckons, with all the race cancellations because of the Coronavirus, that it’ll be his last race for quite a while.
The Hampton Court HM is traditionally one of the races runners use to ‘warm up”, as it were, for the London marathon – which has obviously been cancelled.
Along with 2700 other people, Romit took to the streets on a cold morning, for what he described as a well organised and fun run. What I’ve always loved about this race is that it starts and finishes at Hampton Court, which is pretty darn special.
They also have blingtastic medals, but you can’t really see them in this photo – why are they both wearing them the wrong way round?!!
And just look who Romit met, after his run!!
Not every day you get photographed with Henry VIII 🙂 🙂 😛
Romit, my friend #staysafe during these troubled times, and, as ever, #keeprunning #keepinspriring
