Why the London Marathon?  

I’ve run a half marathon before and London has always been on my bucket list. I’ve applied in the ballot for ten years in a row so I am delighted to be taking part this year.
The sense of commitment and achievement is phenomenal. London is certainly the most prestigious with the landmarks and the atmosphere.  

Why Papworth Trust?  

As a former police officer I’ve worked in the local community, I’ve heard a lot about Papworth Trust and the wonderful work it does. It’s great to think I am raising money for a great charity that is local to me 

How’s the training going?  

I’ve always run so it’s great and I’m used to doing lots of 5k runs. Now Christmas is out of the way, I’m concentrating on gradually building up the runs each week. I tend to do a couple of shorter runs every week, and then a longer run on a Sunday.
