“How did you feel when you crossed the finish line?”

“Just glad that I’d done it. I pulled a muscle in my leg so the last ten miles were just run walk run walk. Everyone was so supportive though, cheering me along. I just knew I had to get it done.

Eighteen months ago I was cycling and I got hit by a lorry. I went under the wheels and nearly lost my leg. I started running because I couldn’t cycle any more. To be able to run at all is incredible. But I won’t do this again. Once is enough.”
