Back in November we introduced you to our Virgin London Marathon runner, Emily.

Since then Emily has been on her marathon journey – full of training plans, fundraising, injury, finding ways to retain her fitness and has now started having the “marathon dreams” which we are assured is normal.

During the past few months Emily has had great support from family, friends, colleagues, physios, C0-op and as they say “everyone she knows”. Thank you all.

A 19 mile run was achieved last week and all went well with various friends providing water stations and encouragement along the way.

Only two weeks to go and she has just received her race t shirts – a choice for her and one for her coach (her Dad). Thank you to Empire Printing and Embroidery for donating the t shirts and printing. Only decision now is which one to wear on the day.

For those of you who would like to track Emily on the 28th April her number is 55812.

If you would like to sponsor Emily you can make a donation on

Good Luck for the day Emily and hope you enjoy every minute of it.
