Athletics-Bekele in a hurry for London marathon glory

Athletics-Bekele in a hurry for London marathon glory

Along with Prince William and Prince Harry, Kate is asking each marathon runner to wear a Heads Together headband on race day to support the royal trio's organization, which aims to combat the stigma around mental health. I've been out running two or three times a week but I've been doing local 10Ks and half marathons as well to try and get a bit more competitive.

Over-70 veteran Maureen Wright, who was second in her age category at last year's New York Marathon, will also be running in the Capital, together with fellow JAFFA veterans Robin Belsom, Steve Dixon, Tim Newton and Warren Birch.

"I chose to run the marathon for Starlight because I wanted to raise money for a children's charity". For David Bondt, 33, the charity is close to his heart, saying: "I was with my [late] grandma Irene when they opened the Beit Bondt building at Emunah's Netivot Family Counselling and Day Care Centre".

The Duchess of Cambridge greeted runners that are running the London Marathon with the charity Heads Together. So I'm am running it for him and he'll be with me all way.

"People have joked about the fact I already know I'll be receiving a medal at the World Championships, even though it's one from 10 years ago", Pavey told Press Association Sport.

Mr Canning, who is hoping to finish in under four hours, said training has been going well and he has embraced the Lancashire weather running in the freezing cold and under bright blue skies.

Roey Freilich has also been involved with Emunah for many years, and says: "I thought it was a good opportunity". I tried to "shake myself off" and "get on with things", but this time I just couldn't.

"I don't touch the sides or the bottom of the pool for an hour", he said. The Duchess of Cambridge met with representatives from Royal Mail to hear more about how they will be supporting this year's "mental health marathon".

The DJ said: "The scary thing about social media sometimes is you put more pressure (on yourself) because you're trying to be this ideal person, and they all look so attractive and out of a magazine". "On the track I don't see anyone out there looking like they can reach my marks at the moment".
