So yesterday, my dear wife left me in London to join the other 13 thousand or so people looking to complete the London Landmarks Half Marathon. Running something that wifey finds enjoyable, she entered along side my cousin – only my cousin didn’t get a place.

At around 09.40, I gave her kiss and wished her luck as she joined the huge queue to start her run. Initially we planned to see her at Miles 2, 5, 6, 7.5, 8, 9, 12 and the finish. They layout of the route meant that we got to see them 3 or 4 times at points without us having to move more than a few feet.

Weather wise, we couldn’t have asked for a better day. Sunny and warm, but not so hot it was unbearable to be running in. There was also little wind, which will have been a downfall more for the runners than us spectators.

Wifey did amazing though. She did a mix of walking and running just like the majority of people did. Aiming for a sub 3.5 hour time, she completed the course in just over 3 hours and 40 minutes. But SHE COMPLETED IT! I can’t put in words how proud I was to see her come across that finish line. WELL DONE WIFEY!
