I’ve signed up to do something crazy! It is me!! I have felt the pull to run the marathon again post diagnosis and I am DOING IT in 2023. I am not just surviving with MS- I am learning to THRIVE!
This goal is part of that journey for me and I am joining a community of passionate people to connect and raise funds to change the world for everyone affected by multiple sclerosis. One of the things I feel called to focus on is learning to live at more peace with my body. I have felt so disconnected from my body since my diagnosis and right after I heard those words, “You have MS” I was in panic mode and thinking and feeling like my life was over. I thought, “I will never be able to do things I used to be able to – like run a marathon.” Then just a few days later I had a clear as day thought that “you will run a marathon again.” Yes I will!
This is my moving forward on that. I am running the Chicago Marathon as a charity runner for the Finish MS team.
I’ve set an ambitious goal because with your support, I know I can get there.
MS is an unpredictable and often disabling disease & it affects me and other warriors like me everyday. While we’ve come a long way in understanding and treating MS, there’s still so much more to do. That’s why I’m participating and raising funds, and I hope I can count on you to help fuel progress. The money you donate will drive groundbreaking research and services to ensure people affected by MS have the resources they need to live their best lives.
