Getting ready to run
Running on Empty
Film by Ian Sockett
Ian from Hereford wanted to do something to help other people, but he knew he had to help himself first. Now well on the road to recovering from anorexia nervosa, he's preparing to run the Paris marathon in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
As a young teenager, Ian from Hereford virtually stopped eating altogether as a way of coping with the death of a close relative.
More than a decade later, a spell in hospital forces him to face up to the anorexia nervosa which is destroying his life.
Thanks to the support of his family, Ian is now several stone heavier and preparing to run the Paris Marathon in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
