"A few years ago, when I was out for my morning run, I lost control of my right leg and fell. It is a really scary feeling when you loose control of a limb. It was like I was trying to tell my right leg to step, step, step. 


Fast forward 4 years to the present, I have multiple sclerosis, a condition that leads to spontaneous paralysis on my right leg. I have months where it gets pretty bad. And I still fall from time to time. But it hasn't stopped me. I think it's because I have this strong desire to go run. To start my day. To feel human. To feel in control. "
