It was Liz Turners first time in London and to run in the London marathon was no small task.

Liz who teaches at Fairholme prep school, in St. Asaph, spoke to Big Al on the Breakfast Show this morning and spoke about her first ever trip to London.

She said she was “OK after the run but had to walk down stairs sideways this morning”

She felt the organisation of the race was “amazing” and that the crowd were “phenominal throughout the race.”

Amazing heat but lots of water kept her going. Although she was particularly emotional at Tower Bridge she was noted crossing the finishing line by all her friends and family back home in Bagillt and North Wales on the TV.

Liz was spurred on by her friend Karen Robinson. Karen is no Marathon newbie having now completed 16 London Marathons.

Liz undertook the Marathon as a charity runner for VICTA – supporting children and young people who are blind or partially sighted and their families across the UK. If you would like to donate to VICTA through Liz’s fund raising page please follow the Liz’s Charity link

Liz also describes how the whole school were involved in a fitness funday last friday and she is keen to undertake a further marathon next year.
