He Did It!!!

I am sure no one is surprised that Chris ROCKED the London Marathon! He finished in about 4 hours and 7 minutes!!! He truly amazes me :-)

I met with with our friend, Tim, at Canary Wharf and he headed to mile 15. We held signs, shouted and screamed until we were horse but alas... we missed Chris in the throngs of runners! The tracking website that I was using (and sent to everyone else) was rubbish! Luckily, I was able to get on the official site and track Chris on every 5k... we still had time to get to the finish.

Off we went onto another PACKED train and then to the grand stands... I made it with nearly 20 minutes to spare so I set up shop on a step just behind the barricade. Luckily a lady in front of me moved and I was able to get a true first class view of the finish. When I first caught sight of Chris I nearly jumped out of my skin! I had his finish line sign high about my head and was screaming his name. The finish was not exactly what Chris wanted but regardless... he finished which is an AMAZING achievement all by itself!

Stayed tuned for pictures in the next few days... And as for the rest of today, there will be showers, food and LOTS of resting!

Congrats to Chris!!! I love my hubby!!!!
