I’m running the London Marathon to raise money for CALM.
I was starting to lose count of the number of young men I knew that were taking their own lives; my cousin, a friend, lads I’d known through work or from the area in Liverpool where I live. Things could have turned out much differently if these lads knew there was someone they could turn to,that’s why I chose CALM.

It’s my first attempt at a marathon,I started running towards the end of 2008 and with the help of Penny Lane Striders running club have completed numerous races including four half marathons. My training could be going a bit better but I ran the Four Villages Half Marathon in Cheshire in a personal best time so it’s given me a real boost,I’m actually starting to look forward to my long Sunday runs now,not so sure I’ll be saying that when we’re hitting 22 miles but you never know!
