This is a HUGE task for someone that just 8 years ago couldn't run around a football pitch, due to smoking 20-40 cigarettes a day.
But since giving up the disgusting habit, I've achieved a level of fitness that has enabled me to do the great south run, half marathon, Tidworth 10k and now for the real big one, before I get too old ;)... The London marathon!
My main inspiration behind this amazing event is my mum who is unfortunately no longer with us... Her illness in the beginning started with asthma and progressively ended up with emphysema/COPD (lung disease) cause from her smoking.
So PLEASE PLEASE HELP my cause, by donating any amount small or large, whatever you can afford. And give this poor old fella encouragement for this gruelling 26.5 MILES not to mention countless training miles in the snow, rain, wind, hail, and fingers crossed may a tiny bit of sun.
