EMMA Stepto has revealed she nearly pulled out of the 2015 Virgin London Marathon.
The Cornwall AC international has been struggling with injuries for the past month and has had to curtail her training at a crucial period.
“I started having problems after the Reading half marathon and have been to see an osteopath,” said Stepto.
“I haven’t been able to do any speed work for 10 days and I have been thinking should I run on Sunday or shouldn’t I?
“But after all the hard work I have put in I have to go up and give it a go.”
