On my run this morning I had lots to think about.  The season is changing, my zip code is changing by 2000 miles and everyday my gait changes.  The only thing constant in life is change…This is one of the mantras I remind myself everyday…Running for a person with Dystonia is quite challenging, everyday is a new surprise on how my feet will land on the pavement.  I never know what tomorrow’s run is going to be; today was no different.  I woke up at 5am to beat the South Florida heat and today’s 7 miles was more challenging than the 16 I did 2 weeks ago.  I didn’t get frustrated, I took today’s situation in stride.  I tried my best and did what I could squeeze out.  I am so thrilled to be running the Chicago marathon in October 9th…I am excited, scared and I know whatever happens I gave it my best!  Some of us are meant to be runners, some of us take the miracle of science and sheer determination to make it happen.  The next 30 days will be alot of running – in a new city, a new temperature but I know whatever happens…change is inevitable, somedays my feet will help me, somedays my feet will need a break…Each day brings a new surprise and however my gait changes, I know that change is constant and my dream to run a marathon will one day come true!!!

Please help me find a cure for Dystonia by donating whatever you can to support me on my run!
