While I want to set a new PR and have a fabulous race what I really want is to find a cure for this freaking disease! I'd love to not have to inject myself with medication every other week or have the "pleasure" of having colonoscopies every year. I hate having to worry about seeing people when they are sick because the medication I take leave me immunosuppressed. I dread the anxiety that I get when my abdomen starts to hurt or I start to run a fever for fear that I'll end up in the hospital, again. I want my friends (and me) to be able to live their lives without having to be within spitting distance of the nearest bathroom.
I have asked a thousand times but if you haven't already donated (or even if you have and want to give more) please consider donating to Team Challenge. It doesn't have to be a big donation because every single dollar adds up. I am more thankful than you will ever know that you have helped me raise over $5800 for CCFA during my training for Las Vegas and Chicago. You touch my heart and while I will be thinking of Ali while I run the half marathon tomorrow I hope you know that each person who donated and helped me get to the starting line will also be on my mind.
