This is my LAST Fabmag article I will ever be doing, I have really enjoyed doing Fabmag. I love writing articles for you to read and to become a Fabmagger was a great opportunity for me to become an amazing writer. I chose this topic for a reason because as a runner myself, Jessica Ennis has inspired me to be a better runner and to believe in myself. Most of all, thank you to Mrs Thornton, Mrs McGuinness and Mr Simpson for helping during Fabmag. I will really miss doing Fabmag articles!!
