A couple of years ago, just before the Great North Run 2019, I had a bout of food poisoning. This eventually lead to me being diagnosed with Graves' disease in January 2020. In January this year, I received radioactive iodine treatment and am finally feeling like myself again.
 
I would love for this to be a full-circle moment and raise some money for the British Thyroid Foundation this year as their website has really helped throughout the course of my diagnosis and treatment.

Please donate generously so I have a reason to run!
