The proud mother-of-two, Dawn, 47, said she thinks Edie enjoyed being in the spotlight and making people smile.
Counselor Dawn said: “Edie kept asking me ‘do I have to run’ and I told her no but as soon as they announced it she was right up there.
“After she crossed the finish line she looked back and saw she was in the lead so she just kept going, she was so determined.

Dawn continued: “She loved everyone’s reaction to the video, it was so amazing to see how people took it. It was nice for people to see her determination and spirit.
