Philippa wins the Guernsey Marathon
NVH runner, Philippa Taylor won the Guernsey Marathon (ladies) in a time of 2:53:03 over the weekend - a fabulous achievement.
"I was pleased with the time I did it in - 2.53.03, which is over 3 mins off my PB but there was a nasty hill in it and it was a bit undulating. I actually came 3rd overall, behind 2 Kenyans! I also kept a little bit back as I have an ultra in 2 weeks time and poss another marathon 2 weeks after that, if I'm still walking by then."
Well done, Phillipa, we are all really pleased for you and wish you the very best for the ultra.
