Is it crazy to run a 5K if you started training less than 3 months before the run? Is it crazy to run a 5K if you had a baby only 4 months before the run? And is it crazy to think that we can find a cure for multiple sclerosis? If so, call me crazy

I've decided to run in the Color Run 5K in Dallas on November 16th--just over four months after giving birth to my second daughter--and I'm using this crazy idea as an excuse to raise money to find a cure for multiple sclerosis (MS).

Chances are you know someone with MS, although you may not know they have it. My sister was diagnosed with MS several years ago, and she's the reason I'm passionate about finding a cure for this disease. 

Please join me in this crazy quest to raise money to find a cure for MS! 

About MS: Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, which interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. More than 400,000 people in the United States have MS, and it affects more women than men, with a ratio of 2:1. MS symptoms can include pain, numbness, dizziness, fatigue, vision problems, and balance problems.
