Half Marathon

Posted: Thursday 2nd April

Half Marathon

Janet Dowsett took time out from her musical activities over the weekend to run in the Reading Half Marathon. This was her first major running event, and she was delighted to run a time of 2 hours and 38 minutes. Janet has told us that the crowds on the streets of Reading really helped to get her round the 13.1 miles - including lots of great bands placed at strategic points along the route. Janet had been training seriously for the event for many weeks, and can now enjoy a rest for a couple of days, before getting back on the road in her running shoes. She raised £1292 for Cancer Research - a thought which helped spur her on when the going got tough! Janet says that the 1/2 Marathon was a tremendous event to take part in - but she can hardly walk today! Good job the next organ concert isn't for another couple of days - she's off to do another of her jobs now - examining for the London College of Music - which means she just has to sit at a desk, and play a piano now and again!
