  Jane Tomlinson Thursday 5 December 2002  
Jane Tomlinson is the first person to compete in three of the country's most gruelling races; the London Marathon, the Great North Run and the London Triathlon, raising more than £100,000 pounds for cancer research - all the while suffering from terminal cancer herself.

Yesterday she was presented with the Helen Rollason Award for Inspiration at the Sunday Times Sportswomen of the Year luncheon.
Jane Tomlinson joins Jenni to talk about her decision to enter the marathons to prove that anything is possible.
