This will be my 4th 5K and it will probably be one of the most meaningful one. If you're not doing anything Saturday 5/6 please join my team in helping fund research for Dysautonomia International. In 2012, my health took a turn for the worst and did a complete 180. My autonomic nervous system began malfunctioning and it'll be almost 5 years that I will have struggled with POTS/ dysautonomia. 5 years of doctors and specialist visits, 5 years of tests, 5 years of bruised arms from blood work time after time, 5 years of various symptoms that has turned my body into a chronic warzone, 5 years of gritting my teeth and not really showing everyone how much I have really struggled, 5 years of seizing each moment because my good days are the best days, 5 years of fighting and more to come. 5.6.17 I'll run for those who can't, those newly diagnosed, and alongside those who are fighting. "You just can't beat the person who never gives up."
