Sec­ond-time lucky for 10K run­ner

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - BIG NIGHT OUT -

A CHAR­ITY fundraiser is hop­ing it will be sec­ond­time lucky when she lines up for a race in Aberdeen.

P a t r i c i a T h o mp s o n - Wright of Kin­in­month, Peter­head, spent many months pre­par­ing for the Baker Hughes 10K last year.

But just a cou­ple of weeks prior to the event, she was struck down with a virus.

She plans to be back on May 22 to raise funds for her em­ployer In­spire, which sup­ports peo­ple with learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties.

Pa­tri­cia, 43, said: “I’ve been run­ning with a col­league through the win­ter and I’m fairly con­fi­dent that I’ll man­age to fin­ish.”
