This time last year she couldn’t run a mile. But on Sunday one
Watford woman showed just what you can do if you put your mind to it – by running an entire marathon.
Tessa Denham-Cookes, from Watford, ran the 26 miles in aid of Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).
She said: “It was really good, I loved every moment of it.”
Tessa, who finished the race in five hours and six seconds, said she had wanted to support a smaller UK-based charity, and so chose CRY, which aims to raise awareness of Sudden Cardiac Death and Sudden Death Syndrome in young people.
