Another of our epic runners in this years VLM18 team. was Lynsey. Training through the gruelling winter months of wind, rain, snow…. to running the marathon in one of the hottest on record, Lynsey battled on with passion and finished in 07:04:28 here she shares her marathon experience.
Running the Virgin London marathon on behalf of The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust has without a doubt been one of the most memorable experiences of my life. From the fundraising, to the training and to the actual race and to the finish – I have honestly loved every minute (I think). The weather affected my time big style, but I’m happy with that now, I completed the London marathon! That to me is awesome. It feels very surreal now like it was months ago though – people ask me would I do it again? – If they had asked me when I was finishing then I think the answer was a resounding NO!, but now????? Well I’ve got unfinished business…..
I have been truly honoured and thankful to the EPT for the opportunity to take on this awesome challenge and have been blown away by the support given to me and have been proud to fund raise for them.
We are so grateful to all Lynsey’s hard work training and raising funds and awareness for the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust.
