Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

This year is a big milestone for me - October marks 10 years since my endometriosis diagnosis. So I’m running two half marathons - just because one didn’t seem like enough of a challenge!

Sunday 14th October 2018 (the date of the Manchester half marathon) will mark exactly 5 months since my most recent endometriosis excision surgery. Getting back into running after surgery and a long break has been very tough and the thought of running 13.1 miles still seems impossible. During this surgery my adenomyosis diagnosis was confirmed - a diagnosis that means I will always live with a level of pain.

Sunday 4th November - the Tatton Half Marathon. Time to do something I’ve never done before. Recover from a half in 3 weeks to run another one.

Of course it’s all for a good cause. I’ll be running for Endometriosis UK. A charity that supports women just like myself who live day in and day out with Endometriosis.
