My target 100 mi

Thanks for visiting my profile. This year, I am taking on Dystonia UK's epic #DystoniaAroundTheWorld challenge to raise awareness and funds for my charity!

I will be jogging 100 miles throughout August and September to help to raise money for the Dystonia UK charity. 

This charity is very close to my heart. In February this year, after 3 years of being miserable, not wanting to leave the house and being told that I probably had a shaky, jerky head and neck because of anxiety, I was finally referred to a neurologist and diagnosed with dystonic tremors in my neck. I often cannot control the movements in my neck, although I try my best to hide it which is thoroughly exhausting. 

Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder that is estimated to affect at least 100,000 people in the UK. It presents with uncontrollable and sometimes painful muscle spasms triggered by incorrect signals from the brain. It is the 3rd most common movement disorder behind Parkinson’s and essential tremor yet many have never heard of it.

Dystonia UK is the only UK national charity dedicated to helping people affected by dystonia.

Please help me put dystonia on the world map and change the lives of people who often feel alone and forgotten by donating to my fundraising page.

Thank you so much for your support!

Shaky Laura 😊 xxx

I'm super proud of this particular run as my neck has been super stiff and jerky the last couple of days, I had a migraine 2 miles in and couldn't see properly. Luckily I wasn't on roads. Nailed it!! 😁😁 60 miles to go!

Another 4 miles run in the rain today. It was painful and my legs felt like lead. I'm so close to the halfway point. Thanks to all of my friends for their support in running with me at my slow pace - you're the best!! Despite the struggle, I feel very lucky to be able to help to raise funds for the Dystonia UK charity. Let's try for £300!
