Gill Thorne

The Marathon went well, an amazing experience and I was pleased with my time, 10 min faster than London 4hrs 53 min. Still slow by most peoples standards, but fine by mine and I did not feel dreadful at the end!! The weather was cool – 10º C and sunny, so ideal running weather. We got a bit cold at the end though, queuing for various things!  The sponsor money is coming in and it looks like I will make over £1000 which was my target, so I am pleased. I hope I have managed to raise the profile of Connect as everyone wanted to know who Connect is!

Gill Thorne ran the 2006 New York Marathon for Connect.
