London Marathon – They Did It!
Huge congratulations to Joseph Coelho and Manjeet Mann who both completed the London Marathon on such a swelteringly hot day! We are so proud of them and all their hard work to support Half Moon. There’s still time to sponsor them!
Manjeet said: “So that was a record breaking hot marathon! After all my training going so well I finished almost two hours outside my predicted time. It was a tricky one, nausea hit at mile 6 onwards and dizziness decided to come on board from mile 15. It took every bit of me to keep those symptoms at bay, persevere and not quit. Also four trips to St Johns ambulance to keep the sickness and the mother of all blisters under control! There is still time to sponsor us. Please, let’s smash the Half Moon target.”
Joseph said: “Such a honour to take part and to raise money for the wonderful Half Moon Theatre. It was hard going and my final time was 05:36:4, which was not a personal best – but given the heat and the gap in training due to illness I’ll take that! There is something about the endeavour that brings out the best in people. I saw people carrying others and countless people running for loved ones, it really is an emotional and physical rollercoaster and a lesson in perseverance.
