KERRY Treanor admits she’s usually just a 5k runner…but on September 26 she’ll be pushing herself to the limit in memory of a dear friend.
Kerry, the manager of our Crystal Peaks shop, is taking part in the Asda Foundation Sheffield Half Marathon.
And before she even starts she has already raised almost £500 in memory of friend and colleague Marie Lucas, who died earlier this year.
“I have never done anything more than the 5k in the past to be honest but Marie was the best friend you could have and I want to raise money for St Luke’s for her,” said Kerry, who lives in Owlthorpe.
“Marie was so passionate about St Luke’s and that is giving me the motivation I need to finish the challenge.
“I am training because I want to prepare and run that bit faster if I can - it doesn’t matter how long I take as long as I complete it and I can say to Marie’s family and friends that I have done this for her.
“We’d worked together at Crystal Peaks and she was my deputy at our Firth Park Shop.
“Doing this is way out of my comfort zone but I know Marie would be proud of me and cheering me on.”
