Help!

I am so sad to be writing this post but it is now out of my hands...Do you remember my intro about my struggles this year with Meniers disease? It has only gotten worse over the past few months and has rendered me useless as a wife, mother, neighbor, church member and a RUNNER. Most days are spent just getting through the basics and many are spent in bed or throwing up. I have been trying everything available to get it under control but nothing is working and it is only getting worse.

This leads to the reason I am posting...I am sad to say that there is no way I am going to be able to run this race. I have been hoping for a miracle but now it is time for reality. I don't want to leave the team with an empty spot so I need your help. Does anyone have a friend, sister, neighbor, who wants to run in my place?

Hi Roxanne!
Don't be so hard on yourself, getting better is the most important. So you do whatever you need to get your health back, don't worry about a silly race, there will always be another one next year. I'm sure someone will be able to fill in your spot. I will ask around on my part. Hope you get better soon, miracles do happen. I'll pray for you. Take care.

I'm so sorry! Not being able to do what you really want is so hard! I really hope you find something that works for you so that you can get back to being a mom AND a runner. Good luck! You'll be in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm so sorry, Girl...that really stinks. Please take care of yourself!

I will ask a couple of friends to see if they are interested.

Get better!

I'm so sorry to hear you are not feeling well. I'm sure you are frustrated that so many things are out of your control. But just take care of yourself and your family. Good luck with everything! We'll be thinking of you. I'm sorry you can't run the WB relay, and I hope you can return to running soon!

You take care of yourself and get yourself feeling better. I hope you can return to running soon. Don't worry about the empty spot, I'm sure we'll be able to fill it. Good luck!

I'm so sorry! It sounds like you made the right decision, though.

You're currently signed up for Leg 10 right?
