Home Parenteral Nutrition Awareness

THE STORY:

I ran my first marathon in Memphis, TN in December 2008. My friend and I had trained together and after finishing the race, we couldn’t wait to run the next one. We decided it would be fun to run a marathon in each of the 50 states. In 2009-10 we ran races in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Missouri, and South Dakota. In 2011 I got very sick. I was vomiting every time I ate or drank and was diagnosed with idiopathic gastroparesis. I was faced with weight loss and malnutrition that necessitated starting IV hydration and then home parenteral nutrition (HPN). After taking some time off, I finally got back into running and finished two half marathons last year. I have been apprehensive about hydration and nutrition during a full marathon, but after a lot of brainstorming and help from my pharmacists and nurses at my home infusion company, I have a plan! I will be running the San Francisco Marathon July 27, 2014. I am planning to infuse intravenous fluids while running and switch out fluids about every two hours. This should allow me to finish the marathon hydrated.
I have decided to devote my marathon training and race to raise awareness for home parenteral nutrition and to raise money for the Oley Foundation. I would like to invite other HPN consumers, Oley members, or care givers that are runners to join me for the race. It would be great to have an Oley team! If you are not much of a runner, but live in the San Francisco Area it would be great if you could come out and cheer me on!
