My name is Kelly Ridgway and I am a nurse and mother to three amazing children. I am also an ultrarunner who happens to have Lupus. When I was diagnosed with Lupus, I made a decision to be the healthiest I could be. I eat a very healthy diet, exercise and maintain a healthy positive attitude. It could be easy to become a drug seeking couch potato with Lupus, but I have chose to become the healthiest, and most fit person I know. I compete in 50-100 mile races and usually finish in the top 10 overall. I recently competed in a 6 day stage race in Costa Rica and finished 9th overall and was the 3rd female! I love adventure and continue to seek out new and exciting adventures to conquer. I dare you to be the best you can be!
