A health centre manager says enduring ‘13 miles of hell’ was worth it after she raised more than £500 for the Admiral Nurse appeal.
Katie Thomas, of the Sid Valley Practice, took on the Great West Run in October.
A self-confessed novice runner, the mum-of-one conquered the half-marathon to raise more than double the £200 target she had set.
Katie said she would participate in the race again and would be keen to put a team together to help raise more money for the campaign.
She added: “I’m pleased to have done something for the Admiral Nurse Campaign knowing how much it will mean. It was worth the 13 miles of hell.
