runner, 72, completes world’s six leading marathons

A
Burnham-On-Sea pensioner has proven that age if no barrier to fitness
by running all six of the world’s major marathons over the last
two years.

Sue
Nicholls completed her 13th marathon earlier this year at the age
of 72 and has been awarded a medal in recognition of her feat.

“Because
I’ve completed London, Boston, Tokyo, New York, Chicago and Berlin
I qualified for this medal which is really impressive,” Sue
told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

Sue
– who is in training to run part of the Great Wall of China in 2018
– says she only started running nine years ago and hasn’t looked
back since, regularly taking part in events around the world.

“Age
is no barrier – I love running. It keeps your body and your mind
active,” she told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

“My
latest marathon was the Berlin marathon, which I completed in four
hours and 21 minutes.”

She
added: “I’ll be taking part in the London Marathon next April
and then running 5,000 steps of the Great Wall Of China next May.”

“That
will be an incredible experience – I’m really looking forward to
it.”
