I Ran 166 Miles in 6 Days for MS!

Tracy Killion MS Run the US Wray Colorado

It’s been four days since I completed what I once would have considered to be an unattainable task.  A task that just a few short years ago I would never have considered being a part of.  A task that pushed me to new limits as a runner and as a human being.  A task that was about something so much bigger than the world I live in.

I ran 166 miles in 6 days for MS.                       I ran 166 miles in 6 days for MS.

That’s not a typo.  I wrote it twice because it’s worthy of reading twice and really absorbing it’s meaning.

I’m still struggling to translate the overwhelming emotions I have been feeling into words after completing my segment of the MS Run the US relay.  I do know this.  Completing something for a cause bigger than myself and pushing my personal limits has changed me as a person.  Looking back to my training and the run itself across rural Nebraska has changed me in ways I cannot yet describe or even fully understand.  I am okay with this.  I know time will bring me clarity and more bright new opportunities.

I’ll be posting more details about my segment soon.  I know you are all dying to hear the nitty gritty of it all.  For now, I’m going to leave you with a few photos from the week and one last note- 

I have been asked if I would do this again.  I can without a shred of doubt or hesitation say YES! Yes, I would run to cure MS again!
