Having signed up for the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon, George knows he'll need all the help he can get. Can Sports Personality of The Year 2017 and four-time Olympic champion, Sir Mo Farah, and The Body Coach, Joe Wicks, get George over the finish line? Will their training, advice, guidance and moral support be enough? 

Join George every step of the way as he faces the greatest challenge of his life. Experience every early morning, painful blister and moment of triumph. Meet sports psychologists, Olympians and Marathon legends along the way. Packed with entertaining insights, immersive reality coverage of his training and essential tips, this series promises to entertain, educate and inspire, whether you're competing on race day, or simply watching from home.

Episode reviews from Audible members:

"Great stuff! Really enjoying this series. A great accompaniment to marathon training! Light-hearted, great advice from a range of experts- thoroughly entertaining and such a great idea!" - Catherine Pollard

"A great training companion. Looking forward to the weekly episodes to help me with my training for the London Marathon. I know that motivation will be my biggest hurdle and I am so glad that this audible series has come out. George Lamb is a great host for the series and with hints and tips from the legend that is Mo Farah we will surely keep us going all the way to London. Just need to find the videos of Joes exercises now... Great stuff Audible!" - danny r davis

"Not sure I could train without it! This is such a helpful training diary. It's given me loads of great tips on diet, running shoes and training sessions to do. I'm training to do the marathon and have really struggled with motivation to get up and do my long runs - this has really helped with that and hearing George going through the same thing makes me feel less alone!" - S Plateau

"Great listen, can't wait for more. I like the idea of the 18 week diary to download once a week. I am a canicross runner and not intending to run a marathon but still loads of relevant and interesting content for me." - melanie

Easy listen that's great on runs!

It's an enjoyable listen that stays varied by focusing on different themes and guests on a weekly basis. It's great on a run as you're naturally already thinking about running so is a relevant distraction, but have listened to a couple on the tube as well and it was still informative. Hearing George panting gives you a bit of confidence too!
