P90X and INSANITY Certified Independent Team Beachbody Coach and certified life coach. I am a tea-addicted, fitness-loving vegan from the Boston area, and am all about being happy and healthy. I reblog all things fitness, geek, and pertaining to tea. Fitblrs unite! :)

I partake of the following fandoms: Doctor Who, Supernatural, Orphan Black, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Avengers, Buffy, Percy Jackson, and Firefly.

My blog is probably about 90% fitness related and 10% geek related. I also am very vocal on matters pertaining to feminism, body image, and civil rights.

This is so important.
I was never a runner. I hated running. I was one of those people who only ran “if a bear was chasing me”.
Then I got MS. Now I can’t run. Physically can’t. I don’t have the balance required. My muscles can’t move fast enough. I have foot drop, which means I trip over my own toes while walking, much less running. My muscles can’t react fast enough to cushion the blows of the foot strikes - try running without bending your knees and you’ll see what I mean.
I often say that if I magically gained back the ability to run, I’d go full-tilt until I collapse. I can’t run with my daughter, and that kills me.
So if you can run, do. You never know when you won’t be able to ever again.

oh god

reblogging because reasons. my cousin has ms, and she’s completed many marathons. she is part of my inspiration to run (2 of my other cousins have invisible illnesses, and they do 5k’s). if my cousin, who lives and runs every day with ms, can run 26.2 freaking miles for fun, what’s my excuse not to finish half that?
