He did it!
Hooray! Stuart completed the London Marathon today in four hours and twelve minutes! Holly, my sister and I have had a great day whizzing around London trying to spot him, and we managed it twice which we were very pleased with. We started off at mile nine, these are the elite men who are way out in front, Stuart spotted us before we saw him and doubled back to say hello, he is in this picture below, well his ear is anyway! He went by in a flash and I couldn't work out whether to watch him or take a picture! Then we went to mile 11 as the course did a big loop around but we just missed him. And the queues at the underground stations meant we changed our plans from trying to get to mile 20, and went instead to mile 25 where we managed to see him again. He is running underneath the tree in this picture, he looked a lot closer in real life. And below are the crowds at the meeting point at the finish on horse guards parade. We all had a great day with wonderful weather, I'm tired now but I don't think I've earnt the right to say that! : )
