Lindsey travelled to London with her mum, dad, and children - Hettie and Jamie - for this year’s big race event, which also marked the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM).
Just making it to the UK capital was a “marathon effort” for Lindsey and her family after their original travel plans were scuppered by the train strike: “When we heard the trains weren’t running, I tried not to panic. I was nervous enough already!
We decided to drive up a day earlier instead - there was no way we’d have made it across London to Greenwich otherwise. If I’m honest it was probably a good thing. It gave me time to pick up my number, relax, and just take it all in.”
Lindsey admits she was feeling pressure in the run up to the event.
“I’d been worried something was going to go wrong - that I wouldn’t finish - and let everyone down. What helped me keep going were my family, and the crowd, cheering me on and shouting my name - encouraging me to keep going when, in a split second, I might have stopped and given up."
