The life of an athlete with both Crohn’s and Celiac Disease can change without a minutes notice. One second you are fine and the next second BAM you are knocked down to your knees. This is exactly what has happened to me this past week. Despite eating properly and taking my medication I simply can’t get my stomach under control, which is why I only ran 2 miles this week, plus strength training.
I can’t say for sure as I don’t know how, but I am not going to allow my illness to sideline me. With less than 20 day’s till the Disneyland Half Marathon, my last race of 13 Going on Crazy, I must admit that I am both antsy and nervous for this race. I am going to fight like crazy to gain my strength back so I could proudly cross the finish line. At this time all I can do is keep my eye on the prize. Before a blink of an eye this beautiful medal will be proudly hanging from neck with an ear to ear smile.
QOTD: What is the next race on your summer/fall calendar?
