Sky Tyne and Wear caught up with marathon man Tony ‘The Fridge’ Morrison as he battles his way through thirty Great North Runs in thirty days, carrying a six stone fridge on his back.
The father-of-four from Hebburn, South Tyneside, is hoping to complete his mission in aid of the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation after losing a close family member to cancer.
But the challenge is no mean feat, as Tony must begin his day at 5.30am every morning to warm up his muscles due to the strain on his body.
He said, “I just take each day as it comes and live in the present instead of worrying about the next day or next week.
“It does take its toll on your body, but I try not to acknowledge the pain and prefer to think of it simply as weakness leaving your body.
