The Graham Norton Show

I've never been lucky when it comes to winning things or getting them free; never have I had a winning lottery ticket (and yes, i have played...twice), a holiday (which my friend won a few years ago after calling a radio show!!) or even a free toy in a bag of cereal! But I think my luck is changing!

Running a Marathon

04/12/2013

A few weeks ago, on October 29th, I ran the Dublin Marathon again. I did it last year-my first ever marathon-and whereas my main goal then was just to finish in one piece, this year my aim was to improve on my finishing time of 4 hours and 9 minutes – so you can imagine how thrilled I was to finish in 3:47.59- a 21-minute improvement on last year!
