"The New York marathon was everything I’d hoped it would be. It was emotional during the training phase as I was really struggling with knee pain. At times I wasn’t sure if I would make it to New York but my husband kept me going with encouragement and support. The atmosphere was wonderful and to finish in Central Park was so cool! I should say it’s definitely one for the bucket list and now I look back and think ‘wow, I did that!" Charlotte, marathon finisher
