I have always enjoyed doing extreme sports and pushing myself beyond my own expectations, physically and mentally. When I heard about MS Run the US, I knew I had to be a part of it.
Even though I know no one close to me with MS, I have met many people with this disease and I am honored that I have the opportunity to raise awareness for this disease using my legs, doing something I love.
Life gives you many paths and some are scarier than others, but when you take the path less traveled you can learn so much more about yourself and others around you.
I ask that you choose the path less traveled and help me raise $10,000 for the MS Society. Follow my, our, journey of ups and downs, laughter and tears, black toe nails and tight muscles, and visions of doubt and moments of clarity throughout this insane journey.
Challenge yourself with something you know you could never do and you will find that you can overcome anything.
