“Once, a long time ago, in a life I’ve practically forgotten, I thought it might be a nice thing to run a marathon one day… ” And now Antonia Hancocks, mother of four, the least athletic person on the planet, has somehow got to get herself to the point where she can run a marathon.
Then on 17th April 2011, “I did it! Although I failed to discover my inner runner, in spite of all the training, I completed the London Marathon yesterday. Thank you to everyone who has sponsored me, sent good wishes, who turned up and cheered – it was all crucial in getting me round.”
