- My Multiple sclerosis races Ironman
This blog aims at raising awareness about multiple sclerosis and some of the challenges that people with MS need to live with. It also caries a message of hope, giving people diagnosed with multiple sclerosis confidence that you can live an active life.
I do not deny the reality of tough symptons and handicap that often comes with MS. My goal is to race for charities who support those who are not as fortunate as I am.
2. My Multiple sclerosis kicks your butt
I have always been a very competitive person, and despite my MS diagnosis in 2016, this is still the case. I do not race to be a finisher. Regular training is now part of my daily routine. I try to race to give the best I can, and hopefully to be fast!
3. Sometimes, my MS has the best of me
Remitting recurring multiple sclerosis is tough, because symptons randomly pop up. I have learnt to listen to my body, respect my fatigue levels, and adjust my lifestyle when necessary.
Triathlon is a way to improve my fitness level and condition, to stop thinking about symptoms. I want to focus on something I like, rather than something I am afraid of. It helps me mentally and physically, and I hope it can be the same for you.
