Here we have very excited and nervous Becky who was running her first EVER 13 miles! Spured on by the money she and Tom were raising for the special unit in Turo that Nina spent her first few weeks in.
David returned quite quickly despite it being very busy round the drop off point. After a coffee we set off with my cousin and her husband having decided that we would head our to Dore. After a look on Google maps all the runners knew where we were expecting to stand and when we got there it was perfect - not at all crowded with a perfect view.
It wasn't long before the police bike came round signalling the first runners
Nicola was the first of our crew to pass us with a wave
finally we could see him waving and there she was
running at her own pace and doing well. David took her hand and they ran down to us together (all my pictures of that are on my phone) and then she was gone
For the four of us it was a walk to the car and a drive to Meadowhall for the pick up. We had a call whilst we were driving from Nicola to say she'd finished and then that Tom had and then finally a WhatsApp picture of Becky and her medal. Their final finishing times were Nicola 1:50:36 , Tom 2:07:53 and Becky 2:57:59. We were very proud of them all and just had to open a bottle (as you do) to toast their success
