Our warmest congratulations to Marianne Neary who successfully completed the London Marathon for CAFOD this weekend.

The sun shone and the crowds cheered, the atmosphere was captivating and Marianne kept running.

Marianne, from Silverdale, completed the course in a very respectable 4 hours and 45 minutes. After the race she said:

“I had to pull out of the 2012 marathon due to a bad knee injury brought on by too much running. But I was determined to re-enter this year, and I would have walked it if I had to. I kept waiting to hit the wall on Sunday, but I managed to keep running. Even when it was a hard slog, the crowds were really good and got me through.”

We’re hugely proud of you Marianne, and impressed with your tenacity and steely determination.  Hope the body regains a sense of normality soon!

Hurray!

Hurray!

If you’d like to sponsor Marianne, it’s not too late!
