H (left) and Wolfy
Supporter

Wolfy and I came down from rainy Manchester to support at mile 17 and had a fabulous day. Despite wrapping up warm in various layers and woolly boots it was glorious and I even managed to get a sunburn (but only down on side of my face of course so I look like Phantom of the Opera!) Must have made things difficult for the runners but they all seemed to be doing brilliantly and seeing them has really fired me up to apply again for next year. Ashley and Christopher Smith were fantastic in organising team 10, and I hope we were useful.

We tried to give a bit of support to the Northern teams too, but in the end we were just shouting for everyone (at which point someone told me I must be a Manc' as I was making the most noise!). I'm hoarse today and my hands sting from clapping but I bet I'm not hurting half as much as the runners.

Well done one and all and I hope they all got the times/met their goals and had a fantastic day.
