BENEFITING: NATIONAL FIBROMYALGIA ASSOCIATION
Hi, I'm HealingWell.com founder, Peter Waite, and I have Fibromyalgia. I'm on the verge of running my first half marathon (Top of Utah Half Marathon) at age 50 to help raise awareness, support, and research for the National Fibromyalgia Association.
I have struggled with the symptoms of Fibromyalgia, IBS and occipital neuralgia for almost 20 years. Running is my dream. It gives me something to focus on besides my illness. It allows my mind to escape the negative voices and just be free. My dream gives me hope! Every day is a challenge and I'm still reminded regularly of my limitations. But I don't let chronic illness keep me from reaching for my dreams and setting new goals.
