London has Runner’s Galore

I’ve got to say, if there’s one thing London isn’t lacking, it is joggers.

Every park and every nice piece of riverbank or canal tow path, is practically swarming with them. In fact, running is the only top-10 sport in the UK to have increased in participation rates over the last two decades.

This fact was reinforced to me on today’s lunchtime jog along the Thames. This guy was kind enough to jump in this pic of St Paul’s from the Millennium Bridge.
