17 May This Girl Can…and she did!

It is with great delight that I write this blog to say that our lovely Louise completed the London Marathon. A few of us here (Mark, Lyn and myself) know only too well how much time, effort (both mental and physical) and sheer hard work…

It is with great delight that I write this blog to say that our lovely Louise completed the London Marathon. A few of us here (Mark, Lyn and myself) know only too well how much time, effort (both mental and physical) and sheer hard work go into completing the marathon. All those winter nights spent pounding the streets of North London, all those cold Saturday mornings spent on a long run and all those boring conversations about running finally paid off.

She was amazing on the day. Jenna and I headed out to watch her and saw her at miles 15,19 and 25. She is the only runner I know to stop and eat a chicken wrap at mile 19 (which happened to be my lunch!)

As well as getting herself a very weighty medal she also raised a fantastic £2500 for Unicef UK. We all want to say how we proud we are of her here at Gillespie and hope that she doesn’t hang up her running shoes just yet – I’m sure we should do a run together now Lou!!

Well done…..enjoy not running (for a bit anyway)

Angela and all staff & children at Gillespie.
