I know not everyone with dystonia is able to do what I have been able to do in running marathons. I find this abilty as “purpose” and represent people with dystonia, most especially my fellow countrymen who struggle with X-linked Dystonia Parkinsonism. I want to pay it forward and I am running to support the DMRF’s simply because I know they are working very hard to find a cure for us.
I will be doing the Orange County Marathon this coming May 5 and later this year the Chicago Marathon on October 13. Thank you for your contribution.
