Eat less, run more, raise loads

Hi all,

This year I'm attempting the big one and taking on the London Marathon. I've never run this kind of silly distance before and I'm pretty scared of keeling over half way round but hey I'll give it my best shot.

I'm raising money for The Christie who do great work here in Manchester. I've lost family to cancer and want to do my little bit to help Christie's carry on with all their ground breaking research and treatment. 

So if you can spare a few quid that would be great. The more I raise the faster my little legs will go...well that's not strictly true but it will make it a lot less painful.

Thanks for your support
