Running: Skechers Peformance Milton Keynes Marathon
Lives: Lincoln Job: Head chef
Follow Gary on Twitter: @runrunbadger Gary's story: Gary started running three years ago - primarily to win a bet with his financee to see who could lose the most weight by his brother's wedding. Gary won, shedding an impressive 4.5st in the space of a year. Unfortunately, working as a busy chef isn't always a recipe for healthy eating and Gary's weight has started to creep back up. As a result, he has turned back to running as a way of staying trim - most recently completing a half marathon. Alongside his busy job, Gary will also have to fit his training in around looking after his young daughter. Can he do it? You bet!
