I have run the London Marathon twice, both times for charity. And through all my training and the run itself, the most useful piece of wisdom that I was given was this: you run a marathon with your mind, not your legs.

Think of three occasions in your life when you have been really happy – one from childhood, one from adulthood, and one recent one. Look back at each occasion, to see if you can pick out the common factors that really created that happiness. Write these down, and try to summarise these things into 3 or 4 words, or a short phrase.For me, when I think of the times that I am truly happy, they revolve around good times with my husband and my parents; family meals and occasions when we always s...
