One of my goals on my list is to become a runner, like most people I am intimated by what being a runner actually entails. I, also, often wonder since I am a proud warrior fighting Lupus and Thyroid disease, will my autoimmune diseases allow me to become a runner. Well, the truth is I don’t know, but I am going to find out. I decided to get off my butt, get out of my own way and not let fear keep me from my healthier self.
