London's famous marathon sets off a week on Sunday so before marathon fever sweeps the media we thought we'd celebrate some marathon heroes of our own; because Pennies isn't exactly short of staff capable of going the distance. Last weekend Katie Sharrad and Vicky Dadson completed the Brighton Marathon - Katie's first and Vicky's second journey over the full 26 miles 385 yards. They are novices next to Sheila Vickers who has been running the distance for years and fundraising for Diabetes research. Shelia ran a personal best earlier this year in the Barcelona Marathon. Katie and Vicky are heading for a more exotic location next - the Niagara Marathon in October - we'll keep you posted on their progress.
