A very short post to say that my younger son, Matt, completed the New York marathon in 3hours 40 minutes and looked in very good shape. I followed the race online, but after about 3hours 30 minutes I gave up as I was so fed up with the advertisement breaks that seemed to go on for ages and all the interviewing of people rather than looking at the crowds of runners.
I think that the BBC report the London Marathon much better but maybe I am biased!
Well done Matt - 100th marathon when you are 50??!!
