Presenter Susana Reid won't run Marathon again

Tuesday April 16, 2013

BBC Breakfast presenter Susanna Reid has vowed not to run the London Marathon again because the training - or lack of it - is making her grumpy.

The TV star, 42, is taking part in the gruelling event later this month with BBC newsreader Sophie Raworth and Breakfast presenter turned Radio 4 host Sian Williams.

Susanna, who completed the marathon last year in five hours 12 minutes, told the magazine: "I'm probably the slowest of all the BBC runners”

"Second time round, I want something with a four, even if it's four hours 58 minutes, or four hours 59 minutes 59 seconds, I'll be happy. And then I'm not going to do it again."

She told the Radio Times that running in two consecutive years was "a bit crazy" because of all the training.

"I find it quite stressful when you haven't done what your schedule says you need to do... the weather has made it much tougher because you have to really motivate yourself to get out the door when it's so cold," she added.
