They’ve been and gone and done it

Toni and Carol completed the Great South Run in the very commendable time of 1 hr 37minutes. Here are before and after pictures – can you work out which is which?

Unfortunately we were unable to be there to support them due to a plumbing problem but Carol reported in her inimitable way “What an awesome day!! Thank you Toni for being my motivator when the pain kicked in! The crowd support the entire route was amazing, much needed jelly babies in the last 5 miles, bagpipes, drumming bands, rock choir keeping the momentum going, whenever I was flagging someone would shout encouragement (took me by surprise as I forgot I had my name on my front!) and kids high fiving the whole way round. Running past HMS Victory was pretty awesome too. Thank you Portsmouth – give me a few weeks to forget the pain then I will probably sign up again!

And with gift aid they have raised just £15 shy of £1,200 for Cancer Research UK. Great job. Should anyone have found that missing £15 down the back of the sofa then please visit Toni’s justgiving page.
