What does the new year bring?

Well, last year was a great start to my ultra running career as I completed four 50K trail races, a 1/2 marathon trail race and numerous 5k’s as a MSruntheUS athlete. I am thankful for the opportunity Ashley and MSruntheUS has given me to run for them and raise funds for research. This coming year I have a 50K in April, my first 50 miler a few weeks later in May, and several other 50k’s on my radar. I am just a little nervous about the 50 miler, but I do have a great support group of friends that inspire me and provide a ton of experience for me to draw from. The greater hope for the new year is that we continue to raise awareness and funds so that we can crush this debilitating disease. Theresa is continuing the monthly infusions of Tysabri, which like all current medicines, can only hope to stop the progression. That is just not good enough, though. Even with the medication, Theresa struggles with balance, memory, as well as overall pain. There are some promising medications on the horizon, and with your support, we can provide the funds that can bring those medications to Theresa and MS sufferers everywhere. Help me hit my goal of $3,000! I will keep you updated with blogs on my training, races, and news regarding medicine and treatment. Happy New Year!
