The 2012 Bristol Half Marathon was a great success for PT-Troop. Our client’s reasons for participating were hugely varied, from raising money for good causes to pub bets… Here are some of our stories;
Top of the bill must be Angela Noonan who has trained with us for two years and lost a over 40kg. Her son, Matthew, bought her an entry as a present back in the Spring – much to her disgust. After countless hours of long runs and hill sprints with PT-Troop, Angela completed her first half marathon in 2:56:20, a great acheivement. She is raising money in memory of her sister at www.justgiving.com/Margaret-Ann-Kelly .
Johanna Herod had injuries and a heavy work schedule leading up to the race day, so did well to complete the race on very minimal preparation in a time of 2:27:46. She is also raising money for a charity researching cot death - http://fsid.org.uk/ . She hasn’t set up anything online but if you know her please give here some cash!
Katie Bickerstaffe ran well within her capability whilst supporting a friend around the course in a time of 2:00:24, again running for charity.
Steve Burnside completed the race in a fast time of 1:35:27, to win a bet (against a client of a rival personal training company). He then spent the rest of the day drinking his profits.
Tamsin Watts Completed the course in a good time of 2:04:46, very well done Tamsin.
