Helen Davies competitive running bug is still there after having two sons

Eight years ago, Helen Davies represented her country not once, but twice, over the marathon distance at major athletics championships. Now she is back on the marathon trail, after starting a family. She has two sons, Kingsley (aged five) and Hector (aged three), who occupy most of her time, but the competitive running bug is still there. That was reflected in her comeback marathon last year, when she won the Brighton Marathon in 2:42:37 (finishing 15th overall), and her recent victory at the Great Bentley Half-Marathon in Essex (1:15:51). She hopes to win Brighton again this year, “I’m running better than I was at this time last year,” explained Davies. (02/17/2018) Views: 2,078 ⚡AMP
