What a weekend for distance running – OMG ! That was just GREAT.

Did you see Eliud Kipchoge become the first person EVER to run a marathon in under 2 hours? That was INSANE.

Did you see Brigid Kosgei break the women’s marathon world record ? SUPER STUFF.

Did you see Miss Bruton, Mrs Williams and Miss Measures run the Birmingham ½ Marathon this weekend ?  They were INCREDIBLE ! Please congratulate these teachers if you see them around school, and be inspired by them – they really are amazing human beings !
