EMMA Stepto shook off her injury worries to finish second British woman – and top veteran over 45 - in the Virgin London Marathon yesterday.
The amazing 45-year-old Cornwall AC runner clocked 2:35.41 in the elite women’s race which left her behind Sonia Samuels (2:31.46) but ahead of Rebecca Robinson (2:36.51) as just three Britons finished in the elite section once again dominated by Africa runners.
“I was really pleased considering the problems I have had,” said Stepto, who had even thought about missing the race.
It was Stepto’s third fastest time in her career behind her PB of 2:32.40 which she set in Frankfurt last year and the 2:35.02 she ran in Amsterdam in 2013.
