Having suffered for over 10 years from the debilitating condition known as ME/CFS, I finally started to recover just before I retired from fulltime employment in April 2012. My recovery has continued since that time. I am also writing a book detailing my experience so I can help other sufferers and their carers and help educate the general public. Half the proceeds from that will go to the same charity.
I ran a half marathon in 1983 and raised a good deal of money for a local hospice. Running another seems a good way to get money for this new cause whilst helping me to regain a good level of fitness after so many years of enforced physical inactivity.
