Fiona in the Paris Marathon

Judging by the number of people who have come to my blog this week by searching for "Fiona Willis Nunez Paris Marathon" there must be a lot of you waiting to hear how my daughter got on in the Paris Marathon last weekend.

Well, here she is waiting for the start:

and here  is her stopwatch just after crossing the finishing line:
Yes, she completed the Paris Marathon, her first ever full marathon, in 4 hours 22 minutes. She says it is the hardest thing she has ever done - but I think once her legs and feet start working again she'll start to plan another.  

She finished in 19,643rd place out of around 40,000 runners but she FINISHED and that makes her a winner! (Did you see what I did there, cleverly bringing it back to the topic of this blog?)

Fiona ran in support of Oxfam and has so far raised d over £1,000 in sponsorship. Her sponsorship page is still open and maybe if you admire what she has achieved as much as I do, you might feel inspired to pop over there and drop a few pounds into the kitty.
