Cardiff Half Marathon




The winner was Boniface Kongin in 62 mins. 02 secs.   Thats almost 13 mph.  

The Cardiff Half is now one of the biggest half marathons in the UK, with about 16000 competitors and it raised about £2.3 million for charity. 
 

The winner of the wheelchair race was Adrian Disney

I didn't get a picture of the womens race winner Joan, Chemilmo, as a cyclist outrider went in from of the lens as I pressed the shutter.

Loads of support all around the route








 
 
Just taking the baby for a walk?
 

I really am Superman.

Luxembourg

A forgotten country on the tourist trail.  Whilst the city of Luxembourg itself is not unusual the older parts are well worth a visit.  The Moselle flows through Luxembourg and the countryside is covered in forests with agriculture being the main industry.  You can imagine it during the 16th and 17th centuries as being a huge hunting area for the royalty of that time.

This was the Saturdaymorning fruit and veg market right in the centre.
