I have been running properly since 2010 and have run over 20 half marathons and hopefully after London 2016 nine full marathons. I keep setting myself new challenges and this year it's two marathons in a week.

This is for my friend who has cancer and as a constant inspiration I’m hoping she’ll get me through all of this. Recently she had to have another operation yet remained so positive and upbeat throughout. If she can do that then I can run two marathons in six days. And bore people about it.

As this launches on World Cancer Day 2016, as well as my friend, it's also for everyone else affected by this horrible disease which has caused suffering to so many loved ones, family, friends, and recently celebrities. We can all do something, so any donations you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Event details

Boston and London 2016

I’m running the Boston Marathon (18/04/16) and London Marathons (24/04/16) back to back. I run Boston on the Monday and fly back the day after. Lots of refuelling, foam rolling, massage, and getting over jet lag in between to somehow make it around London six days later.

It could finish me but hey. It wouldn't be a challenge otherwise...I must be crazy.

You can follow my adventure in my blog:
