Inspirational, indeed. As Twitchy reported, London Marathon runners and spectators honored Boston today.

The inspirational banner, a heartwarming sign of solidarity, caught the attention of many.

Run if you can, walk if you must but finish for #Boston." That's the chant here. #londonmarathon

    What a great tribute. Makes it even more irritating that Obama sent no one to Thatcher’s funeral. I hope he feels like the crapweasel he is.

      He doesn’t need to “feel like” he is a crapweasel.

        Narcissists are incapable of such feelings.

      Cheney was there, if that’s any consolation?

    When the modern Olympics started, the length of the marathon was 25 miles. When the Olympics were held in London in 1908, Queen Alexandra wanted to see both the start and end of the race. So, officials added 1.2 miles to the course, which eventually the official distance for the marathon. There is a tradition for some to shout, “God Save the Queen” at the 25 mile mark. I’ve said that myself, usually while limping towards the finish line.

    How wonderful. Londoners are great! I had the pleasure of visiting there in the nineties and they are so much like Americans. It is fun to describe our differences but we are family. Sorry about that 1776 thing.

      I’m not..I think it made both countries stronger.
