HR's Lauren Wilson achieved the ultimate running bragging rights last month when she competed and completed the TCS 2022 London Marathon.
The HR Advisor is a recent convert to running, but after catching the running bug she decided to apply for the marathon, with little expectation that her application would be successful.
Why did Lauren want to enter? Well, it's fair to say it was a spur of the moment decision.
"I ran a 10k and was buzzing, so I thought why not apply for the London Marathon!"
Lauren started her training in June, and was well prepared for the October event, although how easy is it to train for a marathon!?
The first half of the marathon was achieved with relative comfort, but around mile 18 Lauren hit the infamous and dreaded wall (when a runner's glycogen (stored energy) within the muscles is depleted).
Not to be beaten, Lauren persevered and crossed the finish line in a time of 6 hours and 4 minutes, a brilliant achievement.
More than £700 was also raised for Crohn's & Colitis UK.
Well done Lauren!
