Pippa's marathon challenge a huge success!
Huge congratulations to Pippa Blackstone who completed the Virgin London Marathon for only the second time in another great time of 3hrs 59 secs just a whisker inside her target of 4 hours. This year's training was hampered early on by injury and the snow and ice made training very difficult. Needless to say she went ahead and once again met her challenge to raise vital funds for us with her sponsorship account currently totalling £1384.50 with further funds pledged.
Pippa said “I survived! I am a bit worse for wear but nothing that a few days won’t sort out hopefully. I did have a spot of bother during the race and my time didn’t compete with my personal best in 2011, but this time has still earnt me another ‘Good for age’ entry for next year! Thank you so much for your support, over £1300 raised for an important charity”
