No sweat for Gaby

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BYDANNYCARO

MARATHON GABY Rosen­thal claimed a per­sonal best at the re­cent Flora Lon­don race, fin­ish­ing in 2:54 — and she didn’t even train for it .

Her time saw her fin­ish fourth in the non-elite race and she ex­pects to raise in ex­cess of £8,000 for Au­di­tory Ver­bal UK.

The 33-year-old per­sonal trainer will be the envy of the field in the cir­cum­stances, fin­ish­ing 686, out of 36,000 par­tic­i­pants.

Rosen­thal, who has run the Lon­don and New York races once be­fore, said: “The most amaz­ing thing was that I didn’t have a sin­gle ache or pain the next day.”

Ni­cholas Rose­borne (4:10) raised £9,000 for Chil­dren with Leukemia. He ran for the char­ity be­cause his youngest brother, Jake, was di­ag­nosed with Acute Promye­lo­cytic Leukemia four years and un­der­went a Stem Cell Trans­plant in Jan­uary.

He said: “I wanted to raise money for a char­ity that is work­ing so hard to erad­i­cate a deadly dis­ease that is af­fect­ing the next gen­er­a­tion.”
