Run with the wind

I want to be a runner.

A year ago I was diagnosed with Graves disease which is an autoimmune disease which leads to an overactive thyroid. The only “cure” is RAI or surgery which either way kills your thyroid. Talk about wake up call! After I had the RAI, I started to exercise and take better care of myself. Walks around my neighborhood led me to restart the Couch to 5K program which I had tried a few years before. This time I found that the running actually stuck and I actually started to enjoy it.

My new goal is to actually run a 5K. I am lucky that living in Central Florida gives me many opportunities for that. So here is to my ability to live up to the name of this blog and to continued good health in living with thyroid disease.
