Alan ran in the Melbourne Marathon on Sunday, completing the race in 3:44:45. We saw him on the course as he ran along Beaconsfield Parade then we got the tram into the city and made our way to the MCG to see him finish. I was a very proud wife! Here’s some pictures:

Marathon Man (hopefully raising lots of money for charity running in that outfit!)
Although stiff legs and tiredness have set in I’m not sure he’s got the marathon running bug out of his system yet…..chasing a time is always the challenge so here’s to next year!
