Wendy completes her first marathon!
Wendy initially came to Diets Don’t Work to lose weight and get back to a size 12. With the help of her DDW Personal Trainer, improvements (both in fitness and dress size) soon came. And having never really run before (20 minutes was a struggle), Wendy was being tempted to enter the Trans Sahara Run! As this involves fighting through 50 degree heat for days on end we persuaded her to attempt a single marathon in more benign conditions instead. After 3 months of excellent training Wendy finished the Benidorm Marathon within her target time of 5 hours and 20 mins. As the only ‘fun’ runner (the others were all serious athletes) she also had to run at the back of the race with police escort outriders, and thus received the magnificent trophy seen in the photograph. A colossal well done from the DDW team.
