As I’ve previously mentioned, our lovely, crazy and inspirational friend Emily Parsons is running an average of more than a marathon a day for six consecutive days. On the seventh day, she will run the Great North Run. The GNR is just a half-marathon but we’ll let her off because it’s a Sunday, which is, after all, supposed to be a day of rest. She is undertaking this epic adventure to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity.
A press release about her mammoth task was issued yesterday by the Charity. She has already received some well-deserved publicity on a news website, Cumbria Crack (see here). Yes, I was sceptical too about whether it is an online drug dealership but Emily has assured me it is a legitimate local news website!
Earlier today, Emily was interviewed by cfm. A clip of her interview is due to be aired on the 5pm news bulletin. I think (and hope) that we can listen to it here!
We are grateful beyond words for her love and support (and her fundraising!).
