This long run is for you Deb, and for you, Trey. 16K is a long training run, but thinking of your family and thinking of the journey we’ve been on together got me through it all. Our kids were diagnosed at the same time, and you were the first family we met after that diagnosis took us down paths we never knew we would take. I’ve watched you worry over Trey, cope with horrific news, and then fight like hell to change the world for him.
And you have. And I couldn’t be more proud to know you; I couldn’t be more proud to have you on our team, side by side.
Much like our battle with MPS, my run today felt like every step was uphill. It felt like I would never make it to the end. But also like MPS, I know we’re near the top of that hill, and the run back down toward the finish line will be easier and faster. We’ll get to that finish line for our kids. We’ll get there soon, and we’ll get there together.
Thanks for continuing to inspire us. Send my love to your family.
