Dear [Recipients Name],

Well done on winning the York marathon, I would congratulate anyone who completes the race, but to wins, it is something else.

I know that there must have been hard times during your training regime, I am sure that the thought of bed early in the morning is a lot more appetizing than an early morning training run. Now though I am sure that it feels all worthwhile.

I am sure that there are many more successes ahead of you, and I am looking forward to reading all about your race wins.
