Emma's a real Wonder Woman!

02-05-2016

Huge congratulations go to Emma who completed her second London Marathon in an amazing time of 4 hours 2 minutes, setting a new personal best & beating her previous time by 24 minutes.   Her Wonder Woman outfit was certainly an eye-catcher!!
Emma raised a grand total of £1,640.00 for her local charity Action Heart, which offers support to patients and their families affected by Coronary Heart Disease, which is now seen to be the UK's biggest killer. Action Heart is dedicated to the primary and secondary prevention of this condition. 

The support along the marathon route was totally amazing; from family & friends as well as the hordes of total strangers roaring cheers of encouragement, offering plenty of sweets & high fives!  The numerous bands lining the route certainly detract from the aches & pains & are wonderful for raising the spirits & motivating the runners to reach the finish line. 

The weather was kind to the runners, with only a 5 minute hail shower which was actually quite refreshing!  Running over Tower Bridge was overwhelming; as was the sight of Big Ben & Buckingham Palace then of course the final stretch down The Mall which was just brilliant.  A total amazing experience which Emma can’t wait to repeat!  It is an experience Emma will always remember and one she believes everyone should try…..”Anyone can do it!” says Emma.
