Yesterday I completed my tenth and final half marathon of 2018 in support of LUPUS UK and in memory of my friend Heather who sadly passed away after her battle with lupus in February 2008.
It has been a grueling year of running in which I have clocked up over 350 miles when I combine my training and the races themselves. The hot summer made running in the costume even more difficult, but it was worth it to raise awareness about the condition – I had lots of people come over and talk to me and ask about lupus.
