Sally Laflin takes on her third London Marathon

Sally was another brilliant runner in our VLM18 team. Sally, who had also supported us and run in our team in 2015 has smashed her time from 2015 this year despite running the marathon in one of the hottest on record, Sally finished in 04:01:43 here she shares her 3rd marathon experience.

Sally’s Story

After competing Manchester I knew that I was able to get round in a time I was happy with. Then the weather happened!
I have to say the heat was brutal and made for an extremely difficult run. I loved the crowds and the atmosphere but the actual running………..
I was pleased to get round in 4:01, 3 mins off my time at Manchester but I’m being gentle with myself because of the heat.
Once again I’ve loved running for such an amazing charity, I’ve hit my target and pleased I could support the great work that’s done.
As for next year……. never say never, this was my third London and def not my last!

We are so grateful to all Sally’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 Sally’s and her fellow runners fundraising pages.  Or please get in touch if you would like to be part of our team next year.
