Post marathon update: My father and I successfully completed the half marathon in under 4 hours! It drizzled initially, but then the rain stopped and all we had to contend with was ocassional gusts of wind. It was beautiful to see some London landmarks lit up in blue and pink (the CR colors).
We had decided to enter this walk in memory of my paternal grandmother and close family friends who lost their battle with cancer. We walked alongside those who had similar stories, and even with some cancer survivors. There were participants in wheelchairs and at least one particpant uses a zimmer frame. Wow- for them- it was not a half -marathon but an ultra marathon!
