I have had Lupus since age 12 and am an active member of this site. I have always loved running and have tried to keep it up as it seems to help keep flares at bay. I am running my first Half Marathon in quite a long time on 11 October (the royal parks half in london) and have been raising money for Lupus UK. I'm thrilled to say I've raised over 550 pounds!! uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fu... I am feeling quite good and think I'm ready. I am only hoping I continue to feel well through the next week!
This run means a lot to me, and I would really like to run in honour (or memory) of others with Lupus too. I don't need any more donations (although of course I'd welcome them) but if you send me your name by comment today or tomorrow, I am ordering iron on letters and will add fellow Lupies to my running shirt.
