DETERMINED head teacher Janet Tolley completed last weekend's Great North Run - despite only recently being able to restart training.
Mrs Tolley, who is head of Almondbury High School and Language College, had a bad fall while competing in the Almondbury Flurry fun run on Saturday, June 17.
But she completed the 13- mile half- marathon on Sunday with training partner Jayne Swailes.
They finished in 2hr 18min and raised about £1,000 for the British Diabetic Association.
Mrs Tolley's husband, Charlie, is diabetic and three students at her school also suffer from the condition.
Mrs Tolley, 42, suffered a badly cut arm and torn ligaments and tendons in her ankle when she fell in the Flurry, a community fun run organised by the school.
She is a recreational runner and only re-started her training for the Great North Run five weeks ago. It was the first time she had completed the event.
"It was out of this world, a fantastic experience when we were running," said Mrs Tolley.
"But we did feel very different a couple of hours later."
She and Ms Swailes travelled to Newcastle on Sunday morning as Mrs Tolley had been busy with the school open day the day before.
