We want to thank Donna and Lynsey for taking part in this year’s Great North Run. The “dynamic duo” had already smashed the London Marathon this year, with Lynsey supporting the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust. Below in Lynsey’s words you really get the sense of how much they enjoyed the day.
Lynsey and Donna’s Story
Donna and myself had an amazing day. A weekend in fact as we made the most of it. The whole weekend was fabulous, we had lots of fun running. The Red Arrows were a real treat and the weather was surprisingly warm. I had always wanted to do the GNR but always thought it was too busy or too far away however when the opportunity came to run for the EPT again I jumped at the chance and was very honoured to wear the vest again. Whilst it was very busy we both enjoyed ourselves and particularly loved the last mile coming onto the seafront. We mingled for ages afterwards soaking up the atmosphere which was great instead of having to rush off. All in all a quite brilliant experience.
