What a fabulous day yesterday (Sunday).
We completed the London Marathon in a time of 5 hours 31 minutes. It was a fantastic experience.
I hit 'the wall' between 20 and 21 miles and had to walk for a while whilst Annie could have kept running.
To finish 26.2 miles in a reasonable time was tremendous – it feels good.
There will be pictures soon – just give us a few days.
Almost 36,000 runners; hundreds of thousands of spectators; millions of pounds raised for charity; sunshine; just an absolute joy to be part of it.
If you are interested, the official London Marathon Website is at this link giving all the results. http://www.london-marathon.co.uk/site/
So many people wished us well it is impossible to list all the people we need to thank.
Many visitors to Simplicity Blog gave us terrific support and encouragement since our training programme began 24 weeks ago. We are both extremely grateful for your support – it is greatly appreciated.
Fish and Chips tonight from our local village 'Chippy' were marvellous.
