Fame at last

I did an interview last week for our local paper about my 11 and a half stone weightloss and running the London Marathon.  The interview was publish this morning and I was stunned.  I expected to see a small box about 5 cm square with a little bit of info instead I opened page 3 and there were 3 colour photos and a full write up.  It is virtually a full page. To read the full story click on the link below:


 The website version has only two photos showing instead of all 3.
