Miles for Migraine 5k

 

  Saturday, I participated in the Miles for Migraines Boston 5k.  The event was held at the Mystic River Reservation in Medford.

All funds raised benefited the Harvard/Brigham & Women’s Faulkner Hospital to support local migraine research.

 It so happens that I have migraines. They are a challenge. I am taking prescription medicines to help prevent the onset of bad headaches.  Medicine helps, but it is not perfect.  Sometimes, a headache will breakthrough even with medications. 

…..When I arrived, there were sponsors providing education booths about the newest drug developments, and the latest research on migraine prevention.  It was very informative.

Race time…The race went well, even though, it was too hot for my liking.  When I needed more energy, I just slowed down and walked a bit. The event had a festive feel to it, because everyone was dressed in purple the color of migraine awareness and were shouting words of encouragement throughout the race.  It was the push I needed.  

After I finished, I picked up my shirt and shiny medal.  I love bling!  It was an excellent, organized event and I will definitely participate next year.
