Help­ing fel­low suf­fer­ers

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

DI­A­BETES was no draw­back for a woman to run the marathon.

Kirsteen Swann, 27, of Bea­mond End in Amer­sham, ran the Lon­don marathon on Sun­day in four hours and 21 min­utes.

Miss Swann said: “It was amaz­ing, the at­mos­phere was ab­so­lutely amaz­ing.

“I was work­ing out in Italy be­fore the marathon so I couldn’t do that much train­ing for it.”

Miss Swann has raised around £2,200 for Ju­ve­nile Di­a­betes Re­search Foun­da­tion and she, her­self, has Type One Di­a­betes.

Talk­ing about run­ning the 26-mile feat with di­a­betes, she added: “The only thing I had to do was make sure that I had lots of sugar, but there were so many peo­ple hand­ing out sweets that it was easy.”
