A MARATHON-running mum embarked on a mission to help poorly pets by dressing as a fairy and taking on Britain’s biggest race.
Teacher Naomi Garrick, complete with wings and a wand, finished the London Marathon in an impressive 3 hours 54 minutes on Sunday to raise cash for veterinary charity PDSA.
It was the fourth time Naomi, 44, had tackled the famous 26.2-mile course. She trained for the challenge with her nine-month-old sprocker spaniel puppy Sydney.
Naomi, of Frys Lane in Sidford, said aiding such a vital cause helped her keep going through the pain barrier.
“Knowing that I was helping a charity really spurred me on round the course,” said Naomi. “The support from the crowd and those who’ve sponsored me has been fantastic – a big thank you to everyone for keeping me motivated!”
