The Marathon Man

3 hours 5 minutes 17 seconds

This was the time in which DS ran the London Marathom this weekend. We are so proud of him. It was not an easy run as the weather was very warm, but it was a personal best time for him which is a great achievement.

We managed to see DS three times during the race. First of all we headed down to Surrey Quays, where amazingly we bumped into friends from home, then on the Canary Wharf and finally to Westminster before meeting him at Horseguards. Here are a few photos of the day.

A wonderful effort by so many people.

And finally, the lovely PixieMum has received her prize. How fitting that her daughter should have taken part in the marathon too. And just to show what a small world it is, we discovered that we have a mutual knitting friend. Awesome!

Great time for your son, makes Martha's timing very slow in comparison. She found the heat difficult, she had trained when it was very cold, nearly always early morning or evening too so not used to sunshine.

Hope you and your family enjoy Easter, best wishes for the wedding preparations.
