Not long back I wrote about two local ladies who were training extremely hard in order to undertake the challenge of the London marathon.
I am now writing this post from the centre of London, marathon complete, people packing the streets and the atmosphere is unbelievable. Everywhere you look there are signs of achievement, proud relatives, friends and exhausted runners.
Emma Melrose and Shareen Geers raised more than £4000 for the charity, Make a Wish. What an accomplishment.
Not only that, they showed true teamwork, amazing determination and by encouraging and supporting each other, crossed that finish line together.
There were tears of joy all round. It just shows how teamwork and setting personal goals can help you to achieve anything you set your mind to.
What an experience this has been, one I will never forget, thousands of people from all over the world getting together with the same aim in mind.
I’ve made new friends and met some inspiring people – and that’s what makes the world go round.
Marathon running is not an activity that I would personally undertake, so don’t think for a moment that I am going to take up distance running any day soon.
But leading the field as a course leader on a motorbike is something that I wouldn’t turn down.
Surround yourself with the right people and watch what can happen.
