Marathon first timer, Tessa Minns is looking forward to soaking up the atmosphere at next month’s London Marathon and her training is in full swing.
Tess, 25, a claims technician with One Broker Ltd, has completed five half marathons but this will be her first full one and will have family and friends cheering her on.

Tess, who lives in St Ives, Cambridgeshire, said; “I’m really looking forward to the atmosphere around London but I am dreading the last few weeks of training, they are going to be really tough.”

Her training regime includes three runs a week, one of which is along run, and she is aiming to do 20 miles before she runs the marathon and she’s also going to fitness classes at a gym for extra training. 

“The company I work for, One Broker Ltd, have been involved with the Papworth Trust for many years.

“This year they are our charity of the year and throughout the year we will doing lots of events to fundraise and raise awareness.

“They are a fantastic charity who do brilliant work helping people with disabilities find a place and purpose within the community.”
