Story

There are two main reasons why I am running the London Marathon.

This first is that whenever I talk to guys who have run them, like Goochie and Gordon Lord, they say the London Marathon is a great event to be involved in. I can't wait to experience the atmosphere myself on April 22.

The second reason is the three charities I am raising money for - The Lord's Taverners, Hope for Children and Factor 50.

I have been a member of Lord's Taverners for a number of years and they do some superb work. They are a great organisation. Hope for Children support disadvantaged kids, mainly in Sri Lanka, but they've worked in Zimbabwe as well, hence my affiliation with them. Factor 50 is a skin cancer charity. I've had my issues with melanoma and I'm an ambassador for them.

I will be splitting the money three ways. When you get the chance to help out then you should.

Fitting in training in Sri Lanka will be difficult but I'll be blogging regularly on the ECB website to keep you up to date of my progress.
