Kerry was one of our brilliant runners in our VLM18 team and despite many of the runners training in snow to then running the marathon in one of the hottest on record, Kerry did brilliantly finishing in 05:09:49 here she shares her emotional marathon experience.
What a day! I don’t think I have ever experienced quite so many emotions in such a short space of time! From excitement and trepidation at the start, to a combination of happiness/relief (and disappointment at my finishing time!) at the end.
It was emotional right from the walk to Greenwich Park at the start, just seeing hundreds of different charity t shirts and the messages printed on them. It was good to spot two of the familiar Ectopic Pregnancy Trust tops and meet Lynsey and Caren.
The race itself? Hot! Nothing like training in the snow for a 24 degree Marathon!
Hard as it was, I am so glad I did it and very grateful to the EPT for letting me run for them.
We are so grateful to all Kerry’s hard work training and raising funds and awareness for the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust. If you feel inspired and would like to donate to our marathon runners please see Kerry’s and her fellow runners fundraising pages. Or please get in touch if you would like to be part of our team next year.
