Angela Brown was the sole NOTFAST entrant in the Manchester Marathon on Sunday. It was a very flat course, with lots of gel and water stops, and even people spraying hosepipes from their gardens onto the course, as it was a very warm day. Angela completed the race in a new PB time of 4:56:43, and was very pleased to see her son at the end as it was the first time he had seen her run.
