Heather wins European 50k at Palermo
name is Heather Foundling-Hawker, and here you are going to find out
more about what I do as a sports therapist and a runner... In the women's
race, Great Britain's Heather Foundling-Hawker, running just her second
50 kilometer race, dominated the event from the start, heading off fast
from the gun and retaining a convincing lead throughout the race, relegating
the seasoned Italian campaigners Monica Casiraghi, the reigning World
Champion over 100 kilometers and Lorena Di Vito to the lesser places
on the podium. Despite her novice status, Heather Foundling-Hawker came
to Palermo as the fastest of the women contenders with a time of 3:35:51
to her credit, nearly nine minutes faster than Casiraghi with 3:44:37
and Di Vito with 3:47:06. In the end, her gutsy frontrunning left no
chance to the two Italians, who had to settle for the lesser medals
and also the second and third places in the final standings for the

Heather wins Bodmin Moor Marathon
morning was cold on Bodmin Moor as the runners lined up looking forward
to the hilly 26 miles of the Bodmin Moor Marathon. Honiton Running Club's
AAA and European 50k champion Heather Foundling-Hawker was there to
push up her weekly tally of mileage to 90 miles and get a quality workout.
Heather planned to run at 6.30 a mile for as long as she could and she
managed to keep this pace until just before 20 miles where the cold
and hills started to take their toll. She was through 20 in 2 hours
12 minutes which brought hopes of smashing through the three hour barrier
for the first time in her running career. But, alas, the weather got
the upper hand and she slowed dramatically in the last two miles to
record a finish time of 3 hours and one minute, tantalizingly close
to that three hour time. After the race she was shrouded in blankets
and plied with hot drinks to get her circulation back but she was cheered
by her placing as first lady home with only five men in front of her
and having smashed the course record by over 10 minutes.
