SHELLEY nurse Rachel Jennings is nursing her sore feet after completing the Great North Run.
Rachel, 37, practice nurse at Skelmanthorpe Family Doctors, ran in the 13-mile Gateshead to Newcastle race.
She completed it in 2hr 10min - although she had a chest infection.
"I would have managed it faster, but there were so many people you had to dodge everybody," she said.
"I wanted to do it in under two hours."
The event was the first official race Rachel had taken part in.
She was accompanied by husband Frank, an anaesthetist at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, who walked the course.
He completed the London Marathon this year after a quadruple heart bypass opera- tion.
"My husband wants me to do the London Marathon," Rachel added.
"I am not sure about that, but I am going to keep up running as I feel much better.
"You have more of a sense of wellbeing after you have had a good run on a morning."
Rachel hopes to have raised between £400 and £500 for the charity Get Kids Going, which promotes sport among disabled youngsters.
Paul Brennan, of Holmfirth, and Tristan Wooller, from Liversedge, were among other local people who took part.
They raised money for The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme.
