MS

Today I will embark on the Columbus, Indiana MS Walk with my friend who has MS, Hope. Last year we did the mile course. This year, I told her, we are doing the three mile course. See, last year, when I was thirty pounds heavier, Hope literally ran circles around me on the walk. This year, I hope to run most of that three miles. I've bettered myself in so many ways that I am looking forward to doing this with her. She inspires me. I don't know how anyone with MS can do these walks/runs. It amazes me. But they do. Congrats, Hope. You do more than I can give you credit for.

I just saw this. Nina, I am so sorry that I ruined it for you. I had no idea that you were preparing to run it. You set a goal, worked for it and could have nailed it and I blew it. I am so sorry. I didn't know. I hope like hell we can both run it next year. I guess it just goes to show you that you never, ever know what MS is going to do to you from one day to the next. I am so sorry. I love you for doing this with me because you don't have to do it...and I know that you do it FOR me. I love you.
