Michelle Birks and her husband run the Edinburgh marathon for FMA UK

Michelle and her husband run the marathon because Michelle’s mother in law and a close friend both live with fibromyalgia. Here Michelle is sharing her experience of running the marathon: ‘’me and my husband who both finished in 5 hours 40 minutes. It was very difficult, the weather was unusually hot so we did struggle to keep going and keep hydrated. We both suffered with a bit of sunstroke and sunburn which wasn't great, but after a few days of stiff legs we soon got over it!! We saw lots of charity runners and many inspirational people throughout the day so a big well done to everyone who took part, it was an honour to join in’’.
