This won’t be an overly long post today, but I am so excited I cannot contain myself. And of course I want to share the news with my readers.
Never in a million years did I think I would ever say this on my blog and I most certainly did not think I would during, or after the chemical poisoning.
But say it I am.
Are you ready?
Tulsa Mayfest 2012 5K Race
I have just entered the Tulsa Mayfest 5K run for May 26th. My first 5k in TWENTY years!
Phew! That almost brings me to tears just writing it. I cannot tell you how it feels to know that there IS a light at the end of the tunnel. We just have to keep trying things until we find the one that works for us.
I think in my case, it is the radical change in my diet (raw), Garden of Life Products (more about that to come in a future post at the request of Wendy) and of course the Amazing Grass.
I’m trying to figure out if I can somehow tie this to May 12th Neuro-Immune Awareness Day and Becoming VISIBLE 4ME and maybe even do some sort of fund-raising – although I’m not sure who to donate the money to. (suggestions would be welcomed on the donation end).
I’m as so excited but at the same time I am so humbled because I have so many friends that are still not well.
So know this. On May 26th, I will be walking/running for each and every one of you. I will be carrying every person I know with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Lymes, and all other neuro-immune illnesses in my heart as I do this race.
Just because I am getting better doesn’t mean I have forgotten where I was … or where YOU are.
In that vein, even though I am doing this race for me as a marker of my improvement, I will also be doing it for YOU.
