Running down the school halls is discouraged, but you can't blame Dogwood Elementary School office assistant Denise Hughes if she wanted to get some extra practice in!

Denise recently completed her sixth World Major Marathon!

Hughes is now an Abbott World Marathon Majors Six Star Finisher, completing marathons in Tokyo, Boston, London, Berlin, Chicago, and New York.

According to this endurance website Hughes is one of 8,143 people in the world to achieve this feat.
