MILES BET­TER

Runner's World (UK) - - Human Race - – Sara Bail­lie, by email

I was di­ag­nosed with mul­ti­ple scle­ro­sis around four years ago and strug­gled to come to terms with it. Af­ter putting on five stone and feel­ing very low I de­cided to do some­thing about it, and joined a C25K pro­gramme last year. I’m now gear­ing up for my first marathon! More, I’ve found run­ning friends I can open up to. I may not be able to run for­ever, but right now I can. It's im­por­tant for peo­ple to know that a pro­gres­sive ill­ness doesn’t mean you can’t reach your goals.
