What's your name and which part of London do you live in?

Paul Kneeshaw - I live at Canvey Island in Essex.

How long have you been running for?

Around 2½ years.

Is this your first Marathon?

No, I have done the Great North Run twice, and last year's London Marathon.

What inspired you to enter the Marathon?

Running for The Prostate Cancer Charity - to raise money to fight the disease

that claimed my grandad's life.

Do you have a funny training story you'd like to share?

Only running in howling snow, looking like a snowman this winter, and catching up with a huge group of women ... that was cool!!

What time are you hoping for on Sunday?

Anything better than last year (4:34).

Do you have any post-Marathon celebrations planned?

Going to the Thistle Hotel with the other Prostate Cancer Runners, then a huge meal!!!

Will you be running again next year?

I am signed up for this year's Great North Run, will apply again next year for sure.
