Vassos Alexander is Chris Evans’ partner in crime on the BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show and as well as being a brilliant sports reporter he is a completely committed runner with many, many marathons under his belt as well as triathlons and other mad running achievements.
Among other claims to fame, Vassos is the person behind getting Chris Evans to run The London Marathon.
Vasos has recently had a book published, ‘Don’t Stop Me Now, 26.2 Tales Of A Runner’s Obsession’ which I have been slowly working my way through.
I highly, highly recommend this book to anybody who runs, is thinking about taking up running or may just take up running at some point in the distant future….
So, I hope that I may meet Mr Alexander on Sunday – goodness knows I will need the inspiration! However, I think I may be someway behind the rather speedy Vassos!!
