And Finally, She Did It!

Here she is crossing the line at 19.02 last night at the end of day three!

Her check in time was 9 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds so under 10 hours and she is still smiling!! The course had diversions too because of landslides and I heard someone say the total length of day three was nearer 29 miles.  


Support had arrived whilst it was still daylight.  It was -2 in that very sheltered car park.  Chris and I took the dogs around to the beach where the runners were coming in and it was so, so bitter.  I wouldn't be at all surprised if there are a few very sore faces today as well as everything else!


With her medal and Mike.  Just before she crossed one lady's husband had come in and was number 120 to check in, not many from the number that started on Friday.  I know quite a few had dropped out at check point 3.  Elsa carried on with Grahame, her hips strapped up and no toenails left.


Finally she sits down in the warm with a glass of champagne.


If any of you would still like to donate her page at http://www.bmycharity.com/ElsaHogan will be open a little while yet.

Today, after all that excitement, I will be playing with some bronze clay so back to some crafty blogs very soon!!!

  1. She should be rightly proud although how she can still smile after that ...

  2. I echo Maggi, a massive achievement and I can't imagine how bad it must feel to lose all your toenails. Owww!

  3. Your daughter can feel so proud of her achievement. Very well done to her for staying the course.

  4. She is having a Sofa Sunday week as her poor feet are mush. Mike has to go back to the fracture clinic on Wednesday so they're still not happy with his leg so between the two of them that leaves the dog to make dinner! Lol.
