National Running Show 2022

Mary was in the audience as Paul O’Halloran from Sports Tours gave a talk on the Main Stage about the Abbott WMM journey. Mary was the only person in the audience who was six-star finisher and received a well-deserved round of applause.

I am forever talking about the power of case studies and the impact that personal stories can have, and Mary being there and sharing her story and achievements really underpinned that.

After meetings so many great people, hearing amazing stories and being surrounded by passionate runners I was all fired up for my Half Marathon which is in 6 weeks’ time. So before I left I got myself to the New Balance stand and with their help and analysis on the treadmill I got some new trainers to help get me round those 13.1 miles in Paris on the 6th March.
