A MUM-of-six has completed one of two back to back marathons.

Sandra Johnson, of Merivale Road, Lawford, completed the Brighton Marathon on April 14.

The 47-year-old will be undertaking the London Marathon this Sunday.

Sandra said: "I took 40 minutes off last year's time and came in at under six hours, partly thanks to the support I had via text and Facebook on the way round.

"As for preparing for London, I'm recovering while keeping active, working with my personal trainer, going to classes, and attempting to eat right."

Sandra said she is running the two for Whizz Kids - a charity which provides wheelchairs, buggies and trikes to disabled children to help them lead active childhoods.
