Marathon Training: Hyde Park Run

So here’s the latest in my efforts to raise money for the White Lodge Centre.

As part of my marathon training, here’s a run I’ve been trying out. The A5 runs from Edgware to Hyde Park in Central London, and it’s pretty much bang on 10 miles.

Can’t say that the view along the way from Edgware is overly photogenic, unless you’re into retail parks and dual carriageways. Very satisfying when you arrive in central though!

This massive horse head greets you as you arrive at the park.

The eponymous Marble Arch…

Met one of the jolly locals…

Got this shot of Wellington Arch at the turnaround point near Hyde Park corner, the second time I did the run. Then it’s all the way back to sunny Edgware…
