Tony's Road To London '08

Hi - I'm Tony, I'm living in Shoreham-by-Sea nr Brighton and I will be running my first marathon in April.

It's something I've wanted to do for a long time and have only just got round to doing it.

I'm hoping to raise some money for the charity SANDS (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society) in memory of our baby Keisha who was taken from us just before she was due to enter the world. And for my little nephew, baby Dominic, who also never made it.

So now I've got that extra incentive to achieve what I've long wanted to achieve.
