I've completed 3 of these challenges previously but never with a disease that can leave you unable to get out of bed in the morning or make walking to the end of the road a challenge in itself.
I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism in Sept 2014 and through medication I'm now able (mostly) to conduct my day to day life. There's still fatigue, brain fog, memory shot to pieces, and doctors are not the most informative people when you have a whole list of questions so it's online and places like Thyroid UK that help.
I've now been upgraded to Graves' disease complete with it's annoying sidekick TED. But, energy levels are good and having bought a Fitbit I'm out every day putting in mileage. Will try for a long distance walk in the next month.
14/07/16 Managed 21 miles in 30c heat around Budapest including a large hill just in case it's a sunny Bank Holiday this year. 30 mile training walk happening within next 2 weeks.
25/07/16 By the time of the event I could be med free!

Event details

100km South Coast Challenge

I am committing to walking 50km of the South Coast Challenge which starts in Eastbourne, pops over the Seven Sisters and continues on towards Arundel.I have signed up for the 100km as I would hate to get to 50km and not have the option to continue but until I actually get out and do some long distance training I have no idea what's going to happen.

You'll do it :) You won't want to be caught by me with a smug grin on my face starting 1hr 20mins after you! Although I will give you some of my Jelly Babies.
