Our Marathon Finisher!

We are so proud of Amy who completed the London Marathon at the weekend.

Amy Hewick who works in our admin team is delighted to have completed the London Marathon. After running for only two years, Amy is celebrating completing the race in 5 hours 21 minutes and raising over £1,000 for the British Heart Foundation.

She says:

“I managed to get in on a ballot place but chose to raise money for the British Heart Foundation and I am so pleased to have raised so much money for the charity.”

“This was my first marathon, the whole day was very emotional but a great experience and the views as you go round and the support you get from the crowds is just amazing. I had done a couple of half marathons previously but I trained for 6 months, sticking to a strict programme to help me get through 26 miles. Just two years ago I couldn’t even run to the top of my street, but I joined FitMums and Friends and now I can’t believe I’ve just completed my first marathon.”

“I did say that I only wanted to do one but I have already been looking at others around the world and hope to travel to another country in the future, I think I’ve got the bug.”
