Vet taking on marathon in aid of disability charity; CHALLENGE.

An Inverness vet is taking her battle with multiple sclerosis (MS) to the track as she takes on the London Marathon for charity.

Lindsay Henry, an equine vet surgeon, was diagnosed with the progressive neurological condition in 2014.

As a keen runner, her journey began when she explained to her neurologist she could run 5km and following advice to continue, she gradually increased her distance to the point of half marathons.

After completing the Joshua Tree half marathon in November and various runs in Inverness and Aberdeen, she is gearing up for her biggest challenge yet - the London Marathon.

She said: "Training is going well. Regular sports massages at the Inverness Therapy Clinic are helping to keep me on track.

"The locals are beeping their horns when I'm out training and that's pushing me that little bit further."

Miss Henry will run alongside her brother Kenny in aid of charity Leonard Cheshire, a cause that's very close to her heart.

She added: "Leonard Cheshire in Scotland helped me personally with face-to-face advice and I want to help more people get support."
