An interview with 75 year old marathon runner Jane Gibson

Running

14 May 2019

Think you’re too old to get into running, let alone marathoning? Wrong. Witness Jane Gibson, who recently ran the London Marathon in 5 hours, 42 minutes and and 59 seconds (in aid of St.Christopher’s Hospice), shortly followed by the Prague Marathon (6 hours and 15 minutes) this year.  At age 75, Jane has now run 18 marathons in total – a truly incredible achievement. Part of her training regime is to soak in “a hot bath with some lovely Newton Wood Epsom Salts!”

Our very own Aysha will catch up with Jane soon and post a full article with video interview on all aspects of Jane’s marathon running preparation and regime.

I suffer quite badly from eczema, especially on my hands. It's the part of my body I am most conscious about as everyone sees them. I heard about the benefits of Epsom salt for dry skin and saw that these crystals were 100% natural, so decided to try them out. Since then I've added the crystals to my regular hand wash and hand cream to make an organic hand scrub, which seems to soothe my itchy, flaky skin and leave my hands feeling soft.
