Post-Marathon Part 1...

After a very sound sleep and not getting up until 10am-the first day after the 'Thon started.  It started stiffly and painfully, but I knew I had to keep moving or it would be worse!  So here is a little snap shot of what we did on last Monday...

Alan Matthews, who does media for SPUK, has come to Liberia to film our projects twice in the past 6 months.  He and his son Tim are great blokes and we have a lot of fun together.  Well, Monday was his turn to show us around his 'city' and spoil us small town girls a little bit!  Here are a few photo's of our adventure...thanks Alan!!!!

This was my desk at the hotel with all the cards and goodies!

The view of the last couple of miles from the London eye-the street along the river and then we all turned right at Big Ben towards Buckingham palace.
Joni and Alan at Trafalgar Square...
Alan took us two 'hicks' to afternoon tea at Harrods!
Words cannot describe how good all this was...mercy!

As I walked/limped/shuffled/gimped/dragged my way around some amazing sights of London-it was hard for me to believe that this was the same city I had just run through less than 24 hours earlier!  I found myself thinking about the marathon...a lot...I will share those with you on my next entry 'Post Marathon Part 2'...where Joni and I have some video of the street I ran on and places I ran by.  Stay tuned!
