Marathon passed

Just over an hour later the runners have passed. We're just after the two mile marker, so some of them are already getting quite tired! A big well done to all the runners - to all the Bens, Lucies, Tims, Julies and all the others whose names I never saw. Nearly everybody seemed to be running for something. I saw at least 20 people running for the MS Society (go guys!) and heaps of other charities too. We had Wombles, Star Wars, Elvis, several Rhinos, and goodness knows what else. One of my favourite moments was two ladies who passed us just after a chap in an ostrich suit, overhead to say "that ostrich has passed us three times now"!

Now we wait for the roads to re-open!!!
