Today was the Melbourne Marathon and Alan’s big run is over for another year!
We watched him run long the beach towards Albert Park then return in the opposite direction ahead of a grueling stretch down beach road.
The kids had fun high-fiving lots of runners and handing out jelly snakes, a much needed sugar boost for many.
We then took up a new vantage point on St Kilda Road to cheer on Maz & my friend Dora in the half marathon and Alan as he neared the end, we saw Maz but Dora must have whizzed past!! It was great to catch up with Paula & Tim who were there watching too!
Those last few km’s were a struggle but I know the effort of getting the kids there gives him a much needed lift – here they are with approx 7km to go:
Training over for a few months…..but he’s already talking about next year!
