The last 10 years, I have been dreaming of running again. I never was a runner, but I tried. I weighed 255 pounds so that was hard! Once the Diabetes Neuropathy started I had to quit and I gave up on any future of running.
What I want to express to you is this, don't ever give up! I never in my wildest dreams believed I would ever be running again in my life time!!
My husband has always been an inspiration to me. He has always taken good care of his body and is a die hard runner. I always wanted to share that love of the run with him. I honestly believe that I have that in my grasp now.
He had surgery on his foot to remove a Neuroma a few years ago in which caused other problems. He's suffered with a complete tare of his Plantar and had to take off for quite awhile. It wasn't until he found these shoes called Hoka One One that gave him the ability to run again.
When I saw how much they helped him, I said "I wonder if they'd help my Neuropathy"? Well they have! They take all the brunt of my weight in those thick soles so I can run without pain in my feet.
I'm so happy today, even with back pain I was able shave 3 minutes off my time tonight since Saturday. I'm running/walking a 5K in 38.33 minutes! My Mom once said "Sheri I envision you running with the breeze blowing in your hair one day" and I never believed it was possible. Well Mom I'm doing it!!
Thanks be to God leading me down the path to lose my weight, which then allowed me to get my Diabetes under control before losing my feet all together.
