Helena and The Paris Marathon

On Sunday our daughter Hélèna and her friend Marie ran the Paris Marathon - the first long distance run (apart from training) for both girls. They had a support team of six, including Hélèna's husband Sam. They went Eurostar to Paris on the Thursday and stayed in an apartment. It must have been rather grand as one of the neighbour's was the designer John Galliano and his partner.
They seemed to have a good time, ran a good race in 4hrs 50 mins 9secs and raised over £1200 for St John Ambulance. If anybody wants to sponsor them then: https://www.justgiving.com/marie-helena/
