Anna has been a member of the club for a while now, and we were (quite frankly) surprised that she hadn’t been member of the month before given her marathon pedigree.
Anna was recently heard to say “I’m not a PB hunter. I love getting PBs of course, but realistically I’m not running every race for a time. It kills the fun for me. I find enjoyment in other ways, like collecting different parkruns, doing different marathons and basically just having a doss about.”
Whilst she may currently working on other challenges, such as the parkrun Alphabet Challenge and completing all of the Marathon Majors, Anna took part in the Brighton marathon at the beginning of April and stormed round to finish in a time of 3:16:29, taking nearly 8 minutes off her previous PB, a massive improvement given how quick her PB already was. She was also the first Hedgie (male or female) to finish.
Despite claiming not to be a PB hunter, she also recently ran her first sub-20 minute parkrun.
Many congratulations Anna on your fantastic marathon and parkrun performances.
