‘I re­ally just want to prove I can do it again’

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Brighton Marathon Runners -

A Sin­gle­ton woman will be un­der­tak­ing her sec­ond marathon when she runs in Brighton on Sun­day, 12 years af­ter she last ran a marathon.

Jackie Jen­ner, 47, suc­cess­fully com­pleted the Lon­don Marathon in 2005 in a time of 4hrs 13mins.

In Brighton she is hop­ing to fin­ish in un­der 4hrs 30mins.

She said: “I’d al­ways wanted to do a marathon since I was a kid and got the chance to do the Lon­don Marathon, which I loved.

“I just started run­ning se­ri­ously again about a year ago. Since then I’ve done a few 10ks and did the Folke­stone half marathon.

“I re­ally just want to prove I can do it again.

“I’m run­ning on be­half of the Kent, Sur­rey and Sus­sex Air Am­bu­lance, which is a great cause, and I hope to raise at least £250.”

Jackie runs a small busi­ness sell­ing teddy bears and soft toys.
