I’m so sorry for those of you who tried to access my blog and were denied access. My settings were set to private after I had an issue with my Twitter account possibly being compromised. All is well now and I’m back online. I also needed a short break from all things related to the L word. ;-) Since I have become involved with the Lyme community and started our support group in Boston, I’ve noticed I have a tendency to get a little depressed after an event or meeting. It’s hard to hear how Lyme has affected so many people’s lives. It’s especially hard to see people from all walks of life who have been severely debilitated. So, I’ve allowed myself to take some time away – to re-group – and then dive back into all the work we are trying to do to help people like you and me get through this.
I have been doing really, really well. I’m taking hot yoga classes 2-3 times a week, a few bootcamp-like cardio classes and I’m running again. I’m training for my favorite race in Boston – the Marine Corps Honor Run in Boston on May 10th. I’m running with Rylan this year. It’s such an amazing event – honoring the men and women that serve our country. They usually have many of the marines run in formation while chanting cadences and there are always a few service-men who were wounded at war who race as well. That is truly inspiring to watch. This year, they are honoring Captain Jennifer Harris – a helicopter pilot from Swampsott, MA who was killed in action in Iraq. If you’re up for a nice run along the beach with a few soldiers, come join us! Marine Corps Honor Run 2014
I hope that you all are enjoying this beautiful day today and staying strong and MOSTLY healthy!
