As most of you know I was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome at 8 years of age. Particularly in my early life it was a challenging thing to deal with every day. Tourettes Action, who were formerly known as the Tourettes Association helped me by arranging meetings and events paid for by the charity where I was able to meet other sufferers who have become lifelong friends. My motivation to run is to say thanks for the support I have received but also thanks for other people who are still receiving support. As for actually running 26.2 miles...well I best get to work!
