TO BOUNCE BACK STRONGER

Runner's World (UK) - - LONDON CALLING - @jostephen­son

JO STEPHEN­SON ‘I was bowled over when I man­aged to get a Good for Age en­try for the Lon­don Marathon with my 2015 Manch­ester Marathon time. Train­ing was go­ing well un­til, six weeks be­fore race day, I turned my an­kle on a curb. A trip to A&E con­firmed that I’d bro­ken my fibula and would be in a splint for six weeks. Hav­ing worked so hard for so long, it was tough to see my goal dis­ap­pear. But a year on I’m back in marathon train­ing and ex­cited about ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the Green start for the first time.’
