As I sit in the departure lounge here at Berlin airport I have some time to reflect on what was a wonderful weekend!!. I can’t say that the marathon was an easy experience this time round:-), however I loved it nonetheless. The atmosphere was terrific with around 40,000 other competitors taking part. The organisation as you can imagine (from the Germans!) was second to none!. A good friend of mine, Andy, was kind enough to support me (literally!) for the run…here we are at end standing beneath the Brandenburg gate!. For the record we both clocked times which we were both happy with (3 hrs 29 mins for me and 3 hrs 39 mins for Andy).
I remain blown away by everyone’s generosity in not only the donations they have made to my just giving page but also for the supportive and encouraging words I have had throughout my whole ‘cancer journey’ whether during or after treatment. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!.
So next focus is the London marathon next April, to complete the full challenge….bring it on!!!
Huge congratulations from Caroline and Peter x
