Well yesterday that’s how long it took me (Ken that is!) to run just over 26 miles round the streets of Dublin. It was…. well… an experience ! My knees are still recovering but otherwise all well and I am now planning for the next one! I have to get under that 4 1/2 hour mark at least.

The day was great – Garrath my running companion (for about half of the race) went on to complete in 3 hours 56 minutes – fantastic and we were most grateful for the support from Carl & Vicky who came over from St Albans and for Heather, Andrew, Hannah, Patrick & Megan who came down from Dungannon.

So far we have raised over £4000 for the work of Kiwoko Hospital which is much much appreciated.

Thats all for now – thanks for all the support – it kept me going at the end !

A belated well done on the marathon, and a slightly less belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I can't blame everything on having a baby but since Matthew came along on 2nd Sept lots of things I had planned to do (contact you both being up on the list) have fallen by the wayside or are being done very late. Sincerely hope life in Kiwoko is going well and funding is coming through and you have a good bunch of students and staff to help the hospital and life in general tick over. For some reason I couldn't post a comment on your most recent blog (the one about being at home for 5 months) but I trust you'll get this one anyhow. With love & prayers, Julie Groves (was Godfrey) Knockbreda
