The week passed, Phil Boardman and Ian Daniels completed their 7 marathons in 7 Days yesterday at about 5pm when they reached the beach at Robin Hood’s Bay. These two intrepid fundraisers did it! I was crying. They also have smashed their minimum target on Justgiving for the charity MS Research.
I spoke the night before to Rosemary Howell the Fundraising Manager of the event. She had said:
They are both well but have some niggling pains. They are determined to finish the run!
It was a bit worrying as it had been close to the start that Ian twisted his ankle and Phil had blisters. So, I was worried and thinking of them all day!
I could not wait any longer and phoned Rosemary again just after 6pm to find out the news. We both were very emotional as she told me:
They reached the beach at 5pm! Their families were there to greet them with some champagne. They put a foot in the sea, all were absolutely delighted!
They have done a wonderful thing: they ran to help people with Multiple Sclerosis walk and have treatment!
