You may remember in our last marathon update, we asked you to
recommend your favourite running routes through London.
Now, you know that karmic rule about whatever you put out there

We got pointed in the direction of some great websites,
discovered some hidden areas of London and last week, got a great
big dollop of karma in the shape of Chris D, a running guru who has
just started working here.
Not only a whiz at all things financial, Chris is also a keen
runner and has just written a great book called
30 Great Runs In London.
All runs are as traffic free, green space and easy-to-get-to as
you like and come with a detailed route map, highlighting all the
interesting places along the way. As well as the nice pictures,
Chris also tells you where all the hills and hard bits are and,
most importantly, where you can go to the loo.
He very kindly gave each of us a copy so we're going to roadtest
a few of his runs in our final few weeks of training and let you
know how we go.
