I will be participating in the 2021 London Marathon.  I am no runner, however, was entered in the ballot with a 4% chance of being successful and somehow secured a place!  I’m slowly working up to running 5k at present (a real beginner!), and hope to run/walk the 26.2 miles this October. 

I chose the British Thyroid foundation as I have an under-active thyroid myself which does of course impact my life as a 21-year-old.  Throughout the 7 month training period, it is inevitable my illness may try to get the better of me, leaving me feeling weak and severely unwell.  However,  knowing the funds I am raising will go towards those who need it, and also battle this invisible illness every day will motivate me to complete this huge challenge. 

Thank you so much for any donations and I’m looking forward to making myself, my family and friends & the charity proud!
