Well, for a start the weather was dreadful compared with last year! Last year it was sunny and fairly warm - this year it was tipping down with rain! Ben was running for Prostate Cancer and he had been sent a very useful plastic cape to wear before he set off.
As you may remember, I was not able to be in Reading with him as Penny and I had a prior engagement in Folkestone. Fortunately though, Hugh and Rachel (Ben's girlfriend) were there to cheer him on.
He did really well, finishing in 1 hour 23 minutes, just 2 minutes longer than last year, which considering the weather conditions was superb! The winner, a professional, also was 2 minutes slower than last year, so he was in good company!
