MARATHON UPDATE

20130425-082320 PM.jpg

I would like to say congratulations and very well done to a friend of mine Jo Birch-Phaure who completed the London Marathon last weekend. Jo has trained for twelve weeks to compete in this marathon, beating her previous times and running at a steady pace she did extremely well. Jo works for UK Youth as Senior Communications & New Business Officer and entered the Marathon to raise money and the profile of the company, they do some marvellous work that a lot of people do not even know about. There are a couple of links at the end of this post if you wish to know more about them.

Jo almost missed the start of the race so had to do a bit of a morning jog to get there on time, this did not surprise me when I heard that as her Mum is a very good friend of mine and I mean this in the nicest possible way, she is as silly as me sometimes and if we are both together all sorts can happen.

Here are a couple of links to UK Youth if you wish to know more or support them.
