On my marks for the Marathon!

This year I am once more running the Virgin Money London Marathon for charity.

Running with me is my trainer Andy McNaughton from Edinburgh Leisure without whom none of this would have been possible. Andy volunteered his services two years ago and we have been running together ever since. The countdown is now on as we up our training for Saturday 23 April.

The One City Trust, of which I am President, fights against inequality and exclusion in Edinburgh. I am passionate about the need for all the citizens of this great and affluent City to be included in its success and opportunities and I hope I can raise a significant amount.
