My story

[p]What better way to use your own illness than to support others in not only coping with, but excelling in spite of theirs?[/p][p]I am running the 2019 Edinburgh Marathon on behalf of Mind because it pains me to think that 1 in 4 people are continuing to experience the pain that I have both emotionally and psychologically. Moreover, they are too often forced to do it without the invaluable support that I have received from the most incredible family and friends that anyone could possibly ask for.[/p][p]Having struggled with a mental illness in the dark for 5 whole years, I have finally found the strength to - tentatively - open up about it to those closest to me. That support has kept me here today, and that strength is what I intend to use to make it through 26.2 miles of Edinburgh streets in May.[/p][p]Mental health is never simply a social, cultural, personal or medical challenge; it is - more often than not - something that cannot be explained. Just be there for the people around you, and never underestimate the importance of those who will always do the same for you."[/p][p]Lewis.[/p]
