I’m completing the Manchester Color Run in twelve days time, and it’s starting to become a bit more real.
I can’t believe how fast this year is going! I decided I wanted to do it in March, and now it’s almost here.
I wanted to raise money for Thyroid UK, a great charity, but none of the events they organise are near me, plus, The Color Run is just awesome. It’s colourful, it’s happy and you can do it at your own pace. I’ll be running and jogging as much as I can, but I suspect there will be a lot of dancing and walking too!
I’m doing it with my ever-supportive partner (who has already completed a marathon!) and best friend. The packs have arrived, pictured below.
As you can see, I have both a Color Run and Thyroid UK top, so I’m going to wear both together, even if it does look a bit silly. It’s all for a good cause. I’m also wearing a unicorn horn and ears, just for the fun of it.
My health isn’t what it used to be, as explained here, but I will of course complete it. It’ll just be a tad more difficult than when I did it two years ago!

I run a Facebook group, called Thyroid Family: Hypothyroidism Advice & Support Group. This group is for underactive thyroid/hypothyroidism patients only, and not medical professionals or anyone else. If you have any questions on living with hypothyroidism, or want some support, help or advice, please join us.
I also run a group for the spouses, partners and other halves of hypothyroid patients, called Hypothyroid Patients Other Halves – Support & Advice Group. This is for the other halves only and not patients.
