2012 Virgin London Marathon Photo Gallery, courtesy of Running Network, note by Larry Eder

One of the most amazing marathons that I have ever seen. Great races, real competition, and wonderful winners. Wilson Kipsang and Mary Keitany pushed themselves to great victories. Kipsang's 2:04.44 was dominating, as he fought a tough field, breaking them after 35k. Mary Keitany's win showed her ability to control what had been seen until then, as her impulsiveness. Her 2:18.37, run off a pretty conservative 1:10.53 half way split, was amazing to watch. Now, the real story begins, as the Kenyan and Ethiopian selectors for the marathon teams will be hard at work. Special thanks on photo gallery to Chuck Bartlett, RN Web Deity.
