So…what’s it like to decide to run a marathon after never having run for anything except a train?

Little and Large — running the Sport Relief 6-mile with my friend Gary

The storm before the calm … with my wife Justine at the assembly point in Greenwich Park
Digging deep
Incredibly proud
Elated would be an understatement
For a while, my most treasured possession
