Monday, 2nd April 2012 - The Daily Express published an extract from 'Running Crazy'.


david phillips and michael watsonOn the 12th January 2012, I was invited by David Phillips, one of the runners featured in my book, ‘Running Crazy' to attend the Daily/Sunday Telegraph Brain & Spine Foundation London Marathon Launch held at Arsenal Football Club.

The Telegraph sponsors a team every year to run in the London Marathon and raise funds for the Brain & Spine Foundation and David has run for the Team for the past 11 years. Through that and other marathons run all over the world, David has raised over £50,000 for charity, predominantly the Brain & Spine Foundation.

Also present at the event was boxer, Michael Watson, who suffered severe head injuries in his final fight and was treated by the UK's leading neurosurgeon and founder of the B&SF, Peter Hamlyn. Not expected to walk again or regain full speech, Michael has defied all the odds and has acted as honorary captain to the Telegraph Team on several occasions, once walking the entire marathon course over six days himself. Of his accident, Michael said that it had enriched his life because it has allowed him to help others in a way he never could have done before.

Now it is I who am speechless.
