Jo Ford saw Podiatrist Glen Foley at Sportwise for help with recurring shin splints ahead of training for the London Marathon. What followed was a wonderful sporting achievement for Jo but also a fabulous fundraising effort.
‘Glen diagnosed hyper-mobility syndrome and accordingly gave me advice on the best trainers to wear and some exercises to help with the problem.
After following his advice, and a 16-week structured training plan, I managed to complete the marathon in April. This was my first marathon and up until this point I had always struggled with injury if I ran anything further than 10k.
I am so grateful for his help as completing the marathon meant I was able to raise over £3000 for a charity that is close to my heart: Cardiac Risk in the Young. A brilliant achievement all round. Well done Jo.
