It was a proud moment for the Warner, who posted online updates throughout the race. "Super proud of the wife. Finished it under 4 hours. What a great achievement in your first marathon. We are really proud. We love you," the cricketer captioned one of the pictures posted to his 1.3 million Instagram followers.
