Chris Evans' new Radio 2 sidekick on what he loves doing
22 August 2011
Vassos Alexander is the new sports reporter on the Chris Evans Breakfast Show and has recently been heard enthusing about running on the BBC Radio 2 show.
Jackie Newton over at runbritain gave him a ring to hear about his passion for running from the horses mouth. He explained that his first experience on the treadmill really didn't inspire him at all but once he took his running outside there was no stopping him.
After that he searched for training programmes and ideas on the internet and is now well on his way to the Ljubljana Marathon via the Great North Run.
If you're bored with running on the treadmill in a stuffy gym, joining a running group can be the perfect way to combine getting fit with getting some fresh air in a fun, social environment.
