Andrea conquers New York!
On Sunday one of the Hughenden Ladies Running Group, Andrea Taylor, completed the New York Marathon. It had been an ambition of hers to run a Marathon and in May she completed the Edinburgh Marathon with her running buddy and mentor, Kath Slade, not expecting to secure a ballot place in New York this year too (at first time of application!) So a new plan had to be hatched to get Andrea through not just one marathon in 2019, but two. Andrea has been determined and dedicated to the training plan that I set her, and as a result completed the New York course securing
the finishers medal that she craved. Andrea has suffered no ill effects from the run except for a few blisters and is currently walking the New York sites and enjoying a well earned holiday.
