Louisa, Julian and Thom all take part in a local half-marathon. Afterwards, with all the family gathered together, we have lunch to which I contribute homemade hamburgers.
Thom gets round in a blistering 90 minutes – a personal best – and Louisa is fast, considering she now has two children, and finishes 14th out of some 150 women. Julian, in his first half-marathon, does it in an amazing two hours. All in all, there was a field of 1000 entrants.
All the runners had a tag on their shoes and this sent out a signal so that as they crossed the finishing line their time went out instantly and I could pick it up on my iPhone. Awesome!
