I am doing the Great North Run this September to raise money for Butterwick Hospice. I am filling in for my Cousin Michelle, who unfortunately has had to pull out of the race. But I hope to continue to raise money for such a great charity, and I hope to have a good run too!
I’m 20 years old and from North Yorkshire. I have battled with my health these last few years but currently (very gratefully) feeling strong. Running is something that I love. I love the feeling of freedom and progression that it gives. Various medications aside, I also believe my love for running has somehow helped me maintain my health and prevent relapse.
I have never run a half marathon before but I am very much looking forward to it! I have been training hard and hope to complete it in a respectable time (sub 1hour 50mins).
