Miranda Pigott – New York Marathon

On 3rd November, Miranda Pigott of Travel Finders completed the New York Marathon!  Miranda ran in aid of The Kent Air Ambulance Trust.

“I have just returned from New York City where I completed the NYC Marathon.  It was a fairly daunting affair being in a foreign city having only just started running in May.  However I am happy to say I completed the Marathon in 5 hours.  It was a tough course, incorporating 3 bridges and a nasty uphill last few miles!!  Thankfully my daughters, husband and parents were there to cheer me on, which was much needed!!  It was a wonderful moment to cross the finish line, feeling relief that the pain and hard work had paid off!!!”
