I’ll be taking my first stab at running an actual race for the first time since my diagnosis of MS.
Okay, it will be more like a “jog” than a “run” but this weekend I’m going to try and actually run an entire 5K race for the first time since my diagnosis of MS almost 10 years ago.
I did “walk” a 5k a few years ago, and the experience was rather humiliating, but since going Vegan about 22 months ago; I’ve lost almost 25 pounds, I feel better than I have even before my illness, and I’ve actually started jogging a couple of times a week.
This may not sound like much, but for me–a guy who was walking, barely, with a cane just 3 years ago–it’s quite remarkable.
So, wish me luck. I hope to be the first 50 year-old with both MS and Cancer across the finish line.
