This book is written in memory of my brother Neil Adam who sadly passed away from Cancer. Given less than a year to live he set about raising money for Cancer Research UK. The day he died I decided to carry on his fund-raising activities and determined to run the London Marathon in his memory. This is the story of what turned out to be one of the biggest challenges of my life.
