It has been a month since I decided I am going to sign up for 2017 Disney Princess 10K. Time to check in with you all and share with you a runDisney inspirational story from a fellow runDisney runner!
Pounds Lost: 4 pounds (not much, next month will be better)

runDisney Inspirational Story: Christine Malley
Cigna customer and Achilles athlete
Christine Malley is 29 years old from Minneapolis, MN., with an inspiring life story. Christine is blind in both eyes, but she wasn’t born that way. Two years ago, Christine went from being a perfectly healthy twenty-something to having a rare spinal disease that left her blind in both eyes. Today, she’s stronger than ever, living life on her terms in a seeing-person’s world. Every day, she breaks through anxieties and chooses to pursue her dreams which include completing her 5K at the 2016 Walt Disney World Marathon event in January, and graduating college with a degree in computer forensics.
