UPDATE

 

What a fantastic event! - the support around the course was just amazing. Huge credit to alll the organisers and marshalls who were so encouraging all the way round...and generally kept asking 'How many of you are there??!!' ...this was at the trail of pink combats that steadily came through as we all got seperated along the course.  There was a great moment at our stop point when I bumped into two nurses who had taken care of Abbie in Childrens daycare whilst she had her radiotherapy to, so quite emotional as we're only just coming up to the 6 month anniversary.

Walking down the slope at the end towards the entrance of the place where all our worse fears were confirmed was intense, so many memories but nothing but complete admiration for the wonderful people who work at the Royal Marsden and provide such wonderful compassionate care to all their patients.

We ended up right at the back ;-) and I will never forget the sight of the rest of the Army clapping us home down that slope. To everyone one of our marchers THANKYOU we are so proud of all of you for giving your time and effort...and your Sunday to such a worthy cause. xx

Here we are with our finishing medals !
