100 Marathon Goal with 40 Completed This Year Alone

This week on the WalkJogRun podcast, we interviewed Heather McDonald-Hamilton, a wife and mother of three. Heather is such an inspiration to us because of her love for marathon running.

Her goal is to run 100 marathons and join the 100 Marathon Club. She's moving very quickly towards that goal. She also wants to break the UK record for most marathons completed in 12 months in the UK (the current record is 61 and Heather hopes to do 67). Heather has run 40 marathons so far this year.

Heather became interested in running after watching her friend run the London Marathon. After watching the excitement at the race, she decided to run it the next year in 2007. Heather has not stopped running marathons since.
