Our daughter Clare ran her first Marathon today... 26 miles in 4 hours 44 minutes, fantastic and well done. Raising over £1200 for Spinal Research and other charities. It was my first experience as a spectator for the Brighton Marathon. Sunny but cold wind, which as the runners zig-zagged across Brighton, having a back wind for only some of the time and a face wind for the rest, the poor things. I empathized completely and know I will never experience that, or want to! But well done to all 18,000 who ran, what an achievement. All I could do was to draw the skies and cheer on.
