    I can't wait to see videos of her getting over the finish line, I think I'll cry just watching them. Can imagine it's going to be incredibly emotional for all there.
    If I wasn't in my exams I'd head down there to do the final days walk, instead I've donated what I would have spent on train tickets etc

    Is it true the Household Calvary are planning to ride alongside to cross the finish line with her?

    Yes friend of Claires has contacts, and has arranged for Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment to supply 2 mounted officers to escort her to finish!

    Many of us can't be with her at the finish but we'll all be with her in spirit.

    Amazing! Hope the sun will be shining.

    So true; Claire makes me feel very humble in the face of such courage and determination.

    Couldn't get there but just watched the news - anyone else shed a few?

    It was very moving, well done Claire.
