I'm running this year's London Marathon in aid of Crisis the national charity for single homeless people. They are dedicated to ending homelessness through education, employment, housing and well-being services address individual needs and help people to transform their lives. I've done some volunteering in the past and have seen the difference that their work can make.

Ben S Steve - Any advice on Carb loading for the VLM 2011? When should I start? What should I eat? I'm a novice!

As important the 24 hrs before is keep yourself hydrated - its all too easy to go to the expo, trek around London etc, and not drink much water - your pee should be clear - don't overdo it, but make sure that you have a bottle of water with you the day before, and drink regularly and stay hydrated

I always tell mates - if you've done a long run in training circa 18miles or so, relax and stop worrying about the day - you've done the training, and the crowd will give you a good few miles - you've done the hardest part slogging out training runs in the winter with no support. It truly is an amazing day - enjoy it mate. Look forward to hearing how it goes

Just over 17 miles is my longest run and I felt in good shape after that, could easily have carried on! I even ran the touch line for my team's football match. Thank you so much for your advice, it's much appreciated.
