   I have had the best weekend; the support from YMCA has been second to none. I have been looked after from the beginning of my fundraising right through to the post-race reception where I was greeted by happy faces, a hot cup of coffee, snacks and a much needed sports massage. Thank you YMCA for the kindness you have shown me on this weekend!
