Damian Lai, Rach Goatman-Thomas’ faithful running partner, took himself off on his own to complete the Worcester Marathon. Damian, a 2015 Walk2Run graduate, has been fearless in taking on challenges with Rach over the past 12 months, competing the Oldbury 10 Miler and Stroud Half in his first year of running. He has been training to complete the Shakespeare Marathon but did not start due to illness. Not wanting to waste all his training he entered Worcester which he completed in 04:58:25, saying it was the “toughest thing” he has ever done but that he “absolutely loved it”.
