With a little over a month left before my run, I’m starting to get anxious. In case you missed what I’m talking about, you can check it out here. I am participating in the MuckRuckus to benefit Multiple Sclerosis. This is so completely out of my comfort zone. It looked like so much fun last year when my husband did it but I am not at all athletic. They have changed the course this year and added some new obstacles which definitely look hard!
As some of you know my husband has been battling Crohn’s for some time now. He changed his medication finally, and had some relief for two months but it is back again. We are trying to get it back under control but we are not having much luck. I am just hoping it doesn’t take 5 months to get it under control again! He is supposed to be doing this MuckRuckus with me. I am so scared that he is not going to be able to do it with me and I will be doing it on my own! Doing the run is scary enough to me but without my husband? He swears he will do it no matter what, but me being the realistic one knows that will not happen if he is still sick. He may want to but physically he won’t be able to. My hope is that we can get this under control these next two weeks and then we will have a month to train for it. This disease has a mind of it’s own though.
I am hoping that I can recruit a friend to do it with me that way if my husband is out of commission I will have a partner still. If not I suppose it will be a test to myself to complete this on my own. I know I can do it, but I also know it will be alot more fun and a wonderful thing to accomplish this with my husband!
If you want to help make a difference in the life of someone struggling with MS you can donate here. Every dollar helps to find a cure for those crippled with MS. Our team goal is to raise $1000. Just think of how much could be done with that. As someone who knows someone with MS, I would love to see this disease come to an end. No one should have to worry about what may happen the next time they wake up, and will they be able to walk tomorrow, talk tomorrow, or move tomorrow.
