The finishing line
Whether it was divine strength or a prevailing wind, the couple managed to complete the course in a respectable 3hrs 3mins (John) and 3hrs 24 mins (Meg). ‘John came first and I came second in our age group, but actually I don’t think there was anyone else our age running!’
They have already raised £3,300 from the run. Meanwhile a dinner in their honour, hosted by their neighbour – a talented Indian chef – looks to raise another £400 and the couple are daring to think they could nudge towards a total of £4,000 for Tearfund.
Meg remembers letting out an impassioned ‘hallelujah’ when she crossed the finish line. However, there was one other big encouragement to follow.‘On our medals are the words ‘finisher’ and that meant something quite personal to me. When I finally meet him, I want to hear God say to me “well done good and faithful servant, you’ve finished the course.”’
