Virgin Money London Marathon
This is the third run I’ve done for Brooke and my most amazing experience so far. The atmosphere is just unforgettable. I can’t wait to run again next year. The support of friends, family and clients has been brilliant. I couldn’t recommend running for Brooke highly enough: it’s a great cause and they’re a great team.
