Jo Pavey raring to go for Great North Run

Jo Pavey is looking forward to her return to running at Sunday's Great North Run.

Pavey finished on the podium on her Great North Run debut three years ago after a close battle to the line, and is set to face friend and rival Mara Yamauchi in Newcastle.

Pavey, who missed the World Championships in Daegu through injury, says the Great North Run is a "stepping stone" towards getting ready for London 2012.

The Great North Run takes place on Sunday and you can watch live on BBC One (and the BBC Sport website in the UK) and listen on BBC Radio 5 live from 0930 BST.
