My story

[p]During 2017 I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I had suffered a few aches and pains over the years but was shocked to be diagnosed with the disease at just 46 years old. The pain and swelling in my knees resulted in me struggling to walk. I worried about the impact this would have on my family, work and how I needed to adapt to manage the condition.[/p][p]I received specialist care from the Rheumatology department at Chapel Allerton Hospital, Leeds and thanks to their incredible care and support I have been able to manage effectively the condition. One of the hospital Physiotherapists encouraged me to exercise regularly to manage my pain, and their encouragement really spurred me on to try ‘Couch to 5k’ .[/p][p]My wife and younger brother both work as Doctors for the NHS, so I have seen first-hand the impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on frontline staff and felt it was my duty to give something back. In my thirties I had been a keen runner and I had hoped to pick up the trainers and complete again a Marathon. Turning 50 I wanted to prove that I can still complete a running challenge, despite my condition, so decided to sign up for the Leeds Half and Virtual London Marathon to raise funds for Leeds Hospitals Charity and Versus Arthritis[/p][p]I have now been training for over 20 weeks, I’m determined to manage my disease, I don’t want it to define me – and taking on this challenge is a great way to prove that![/p][p][b]Please help me raise some funds for these charities. Thank You[/b][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
