Can't believe I did it, but I finished my 5K today. All run, no cane, and I was in the middle of 6000 runners. Not bad for a gimp, eh?
While I was running, I was thinking about all of you out there that are in chronic pain, and when I wanted to slow down or give up, you were all my inspiration: we need to keep on keeping on, right? Thanks everyone for getting me through the race with a smile on my face (see the photo my hubby took)
Next race planned: my 2nd triathlon in October; anyone in DFW area that can get to Keller look forward to meeting you and having you cheer me on. You are all my strength!!

Outstanding flygal!! I've also been getting back into my pre-surgery hot yoga capability. I even did two sessions this weekend. We are proud of you and glad you use us for your motivation. :D






Mike Roman

Michael Roman will always be lovingly remembered for inspiring so many who suffer from chronic pain. He toured the country sharing about his battle against chronic pain — urging others to never give up. Through determination and a positive outlook, Michael lived his life to the fullest, while also giving hope and strength to countless people who faced seemingly insurmountable situations. Michael will be missed, but his positive influence lives on.

At Race Against Pain, our mission is to bring help, hope, and heroes into your life — so you and your loved ones can win your race against the debilitating effects of severe chronic pain.

We're here to help you get back to living your life, and to help you achieve your dreams — whatever those dreams may be.

Everyone has his or her own race against pain. For most, it's a race to find answers, information, people to talk to, and heroes who can help — and to get back what pain has stolen.
