Story

1000KM. 52 Weeks. 6 Marathons. 26 Half Marathons. 20 10ks.

Current Total: 1093.48KM | 53 Races

I have chosen to raise money for the National Eczema Society because I have witnessed first-hand the physical and emotional toll these conditions have had on my partner, who has been suffering from eczema for the past 7 years. Alongside eczema, she also suffers from other skin conditions including atopic dermatitis (and asthma, hayfever, rhinitis), contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, neurodermatitis and urticaria. Before meeting her I, like many, was ignorant of how extreme eczema and related conditions could be, but I have since learnt the debilitating effect it can have on day to day life. 

When her condition is at its worst I feel at a complete loss and it is heartbreaking to see her struggle physically and emotionally with her skin, knowing there is little I can do to help. I feel that I have now possibly found something that I can do to help her and others like her who suffer from similar conditions.

Jenny has started a blog this year to give updates on her battle with her condition and to reach out and support others who are facing a similar struggle. You can read it here: I Have Eczema

My name is Shane Nicholl and I am a 23 year old web developer from Lincoln. In 2013 I have set myself the challenge of running 1000km to raise money for the National Eczema Society. Every weekend, come rain or shine, I am lacing up my trainers and running either a 10k, Half or Full Marathon. Where possible I will be reaching this target by entering organised races, such as the London Marathon, Great South Run and Silverstone Half Marathon. Other times I will be forced to hit the pavement and run through the streets of Lincolnshire and Norfolk to reach my 1000km target.
