Monopoly Marathon!!!!

Yesterday, Saturday 24th of September, I woke up at 4:50 in the morning in order to make it to my Aunts before 5:30 so my mum would get to South London for the event. My mum and her friend were going to walk the London Marathon Walk. The Monopoly board!! That means  they would walk around London passing all the Monopoly Board landmarks . She left the start at 8:00 in the morning and by 8:30 we were out as well. We were going to surprise them by taking the train to Green Park and meeting them in ST James’ park. We got their and waited. 20 minutes later they arrived and were still going strong so we took a picture and they were off again. It was then that we left and went to ST Pancras’ church to meet them for lunch. We ate and then took the 45 to Burgess park and waited a few hours whilst they completed the other 16 miles they had to do (because it was 28 miles). A few hours later they arrived. I was screaming at the top of my lungs cheering them on. They crossed the finish line and they got medals. Once it was over they checked their Justgiving page. They had raised £700 for their chosen charity CLAPA (Cleft Lip And Palate Association) -140% of their £500 target. We got the bus home, had dinner and went to bed. And that was my tiring day.
