Charlie is looking forward to stepping out of her comfort zone by taking part in this year's London 10k, and supporting the Psoriasis Association while she's at it.
She says 'I must be nuts! I have next to no long distance running experience!
I signed up for this 10k on a whim as a challenge, I'm really excited about pushing myself out of my comfort zone and raising money for a cause that's close to my heart. Hoping to have some fun on the way :)
If you know me, you're probably aware that I have psoriasis. I've had quite widespread guttate (raindrops) psoriasis for about 17 years now. It's been tough on my self image, but it's also been an inspiration for me to make some massive lifestyle changes and really connect with my health and well being. This run will be a part of that ongoing journey!
I'm proud to be supporting the Psoriasis Association in raising awareness, researching treatments and supporting people with psoriasis. Psoriasis isn't a condition many people recognise on sight or know much about, which means as a sufferer you get a lot of questions. Awareness is so key to people suffering from psoriasis' well being - it isn't nice when a stranger asks you what happened to your legs/face/arms for the fifth time that week, even when they have good intentions!
Any and all sponsorship welcomed and encouraged!'
