WOW, what a response! Thank you to everybody for the support, encouragement, and lovely SparkGoodies. My eyes welled up as I read all the replies. It makes me feel wonderful to be able to be an encouragement to anyone.

As I've been battling with these health problems over the years, Gout in particular for the past year, I find myself getting angry on those days when I walk on the side of my foot just to get around the house because the sun is hiding behind clouds and the humidity rises and the causes the inflammation to increase. I get angry at the inflammation and then the anger turns into determination to not let it win. I have spent way too much time over the years feeling sorry for myself. I would much rather feel determined to accomplish my goals no matter what my body tries to do to stop me.

I can't let the diseases beat me. That's a miserable way to live and I do not want to do it anymore.

In a million years, I never would have dreamed that at 233 pounds with severe fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and gout, I would walk a 10k.

I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't been there to experience it for myself. I would have scoffed at the mere thought of breaking my all-time walking record of 6 miles at about 40 pounds lighter minus the gout, especially at my weight and fitness level. I set the record in 2009 after walking almost every day for months. I only did it once and I was never able to match it.....that is, until today. I joined the virtual race in April to walk 10k and I decided today to go for it. I have been walking and training for 5k, but I just wanted to see if I could do it.

It took me over 2 hours to walk the 6.2 miles, but I managed to pull it off.

Next stop.....HALF-MARATHON!
