Despite concerns raised by the recent bombings at the Boston Marathon, the London marathon prevailed today and thousands of runners offered tributes to those killed and injured in the tragedy that took place last Monday.
The race began after a moment of silence for the victims, and many wore black armbands as a sign of solidarity. Two runners finished carrying a banner that read “For Boston.”
Valerie Bloomfield, a 40-year-old participant from France said:
“It means that runners are stronger than bombers,”
London’s is the first major international marathon since the two bombs exploded near the finish line in Boston killing three.
