If you are looking to watch something incredibly inspiring, this is the story to check out.
Kayla has multiple sclerosis and her legs go completely numb when she runs. When her body temperature heats up it triggers her MS symptoms to return temporarily. The feeling in her legs start to deaden. Because she loses the feeling in her legs she can’t come to a complete stop on her own.. that is when her coach helps her and carries her at the finish line. As her body temperature returns to normal after she finishes her races the MS symptoms go away.
“I want to make the most of every day. I do it (running) because it makes me happy. It makes me feel normal and whole. It’s difficult to live with a disease where your own body is fighting against itself so when I am running, I feel like I am battling that. As long as I am running, everything is fine!”
This totally made me cry. People are so amazing.
I started my Saturday morning off early with the Josse. We did a total of 10.5 miles and ended up stopping a bunch of times throughout the run to talk to runner friends along the trail. Running hour = social hour.
It rained most of the day (except for when we were running) so we were all about puffy coats and hoods.
While we were at Costco we saw this waffle iron that I need. It makes TWO waffles at one time! Such a good idea.
Lots of veggies were consumed yesterday. I always drizzle my broccoli in olive oil and way too much garlic salt and roast it at 400 degrees for 13ish minutes.
And I kept everything simple with my kitchen staples.
Stopped by the neighbors house to say hello and tackle them…
And then put up all of the Christmas decorations.
I said, “YES” out loud right when I saw Candice’s post yesterday:
Running helps me keep calm:)
