Now think back for just a moment…Could you see your mother or grandmother running 1 mile let alone 27 marathons in 27 days!

I was sent this article about Rosie Swale by Boomer and Attorney Mike Petrie of Petrie Law. Mike, thanks for the contribution.

A triumphant grandmother has ran into the record books after completing 27 consecutive fund-raising marathons, reports Britain’s SkyNews.


Rosie Swale Pope MBE, 63, ran the final step in her gruelling 707 mile odyssey to rapturous cheering from a crowd of supporters.

Crossing the finish line in Tudor Square, in her home town of Tenby, in west Wales, she said she was “tired but very very happy”.

The fund-raising phenomenon had originally intended finishing in Llanelli, where she completed her 26th consecutive marathon.

But in an effort to thank a legion of supporters across the UK for their backing she ran an extra marathon by way of a traditional lap of honour.
