Congratulations to Holly who has just completed her 8th marathon in Bournemouth on 8th October with a PB (personal best)! Holly now only has 4 marathons left to run in her huge challenge of completing 12 marathons in 12 months, we are all very impressed!
'I ran the Bournemouth marathon on the 8th of October, it was a special one for me as it's where my sister Beth went for her inpatient stay at the mother and baby unit. There were good memories from her time there that really spurred me on and I managed to finish with a personal best of 5hrs 27mins.
The course itself was beautiful along the coastline and it was very well organised with lots of water and energy gel stops. Imogen, my 4 year old, even got to cross the line with me- which she loved!
Only 4 to go now! The next one is a local area one with my work mates on 31st October. Followed by 2 marathons on the Thames path at the beginning of November.'
We wish Holly all the best for her 9th marathon on 31st October!
