Last October, over a few weeks, I noticed my resting heart rate had doubled, and I had lost over 10% of my body weight and was sleeping less than 2 hours a night. After numerous blood tests, I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism. I am still under treatment but was given the Ok by my doctor to continue exercising in February this year. The Oxford Half marathon sounded like an achievable goal! I will be running the Oxfordshire Half Marathon on 17 October 2021 and Fundraising on behalf of the British Thyroid Foundation.

Would you please sponsor me what you can so we can support and raise funds for this relatively unknown disease that is about 10 times more common in women than men?

Thanks for your support
