Well I fulfilled one of my all time goals...I ran the nyc Marathon this past Sunday. It was awesome beyond my expectations! 4:48 was my time. Certainly nothing earth shattering but I am thrilled. When I was first diagnosed the doctor told me I could not exercise. I was so upset. I thought i would never get to run again. Do not let any doctor destroy your dreams. I have no idea what my platelets numbers are and I do not care.
