Why I run for the arthritis foundation team

While the actual state that every runner feels varies immensely for each individual there is a common feeling associated with the term "runner's high". At the time, the body and mind are both highly stimulated and seem to elevate a person's senses. That is the moment when one feels a connection between the mind and the body. At that second your body is ready to give up, but your mind takes over control. It is a unique time when mind commands and body follows. That’s the reason I run.
The beauty of running stems from the choice to continue, from the anticipation of the next challenge, next race. Freedom of your body and mind - that is the gift of running.
Imagine not having that freedom. Imagine your body working against you, making moments like this impossible. That is life with arthritis. We fight to end this battle, so others can experience this amazing feeling of “runners high”.
I will run 26.2 mi on November 6th to help fight arthritis. Your small contribution to our cause will help to make another step towards a cure.
