    I love to run, but when I was diagnosed with RA I stopped. I have hated that fact, and have always wanted to start again, but thought I would never be able to. Thanks for the encouragement, I hope to run a marathon one day.

    Great job Wendy. I used to ride a road bike 300-400 miles a week. Can barely get on a stationary trainer right now, but have not given up hope. Thanks for sharing your story and inspiring us.
