Deborah Gilman, from Hilton, faced Hadrian’s Wall in searing 31C heat to raise money and awareness for pancreatic cancer after he brother, Max died from the disease in December 2016.
She came 14 out of hundreds of people in the gruelling race and was the second woman to cross the finish line.
We caught up with her about a few of her favourite things.
Favourite film or TV series? It’s got to be Friends. I do like a good rom-com, but nothing can beat Friends.
Favourite takeaway? I really like Chinese and Indian, but I think Chinese has to take it.
Tell us one thing no-one knows about you? I hate deep dark water and the thought of outer space – I really don’t like not knowing what’s out there!
What’s your ultimate ambition in life? I would love to run for Great Britain, in one of their vests. I’d also love to complete all of the six major marathons.
Pet hates? Hot food on cold plates – I can’t stand it. Everyone scolds their fingers on the plates at my house!
What’s your favourite song? It’s a mash-up of Somewhere Over the Rainbow and What a Wonderful World by Iz.
Marmite? Love it or hate it? Love it – my daughter does too. She used to feed it to horses when she was younger, safe to say the horses weren’t fans!
What’s your worst habit? I’m always late.
What was your first car? It was a Vauxhall Nova called Vinnie.
If you could make a law, what would it be? Everyone should smile – I hate seeing people upset.
If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be? I’d love to go to Yosemite’s National Park in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Who would you invite to a dinner party - dead or alive? I would invite my mum. She died when I was 19 and I’d do anything to see her again.
What would you do if you won the lottery? With that sort of money, I’d do lots of things!
