Training included plenty of early morning interval and hill sessions, lots of lunchtime running and also plenty of Saturday long runs.  wendy was supported by her sisters on plenty of the runs and also by fellow Striders.

Congratulations Wendy, we are looking forward to seeing you unleashed on the Queensland marathon scene! For those of you who read this and are inspired remember that we have two coaches in Striders who are very experienced at the marathon and ultra-marathon – so why not give it a go?  There are plenty of opportunities on the SE QLD running calendar for half marathons and 3 options for marathons.wendylondonbp
