Rune Rofke - Glenn Emery
Today was a very unique day. I used a wheelchair. It's because I've been so exhausted lately. I start out strong, and then after a couple hours my legs just quit. So I have to stop and rest for longer and longer periods of the time. It makes be feel bad, that I'm not working hard enough, but I just don't have the energy. The combination of the exhaustion and the guilt make me depressed, and that's probably the main reason my result keeps going down.
My legs have been giving me problems ever since I came to MFT. They ache all the time now. Sometimes the pain is so bad I can hardly sleep, even though I'm so tired. But up until now I've been able to keep going.
Tony says I need a rest. Today he rented a wheelchair from a medical supply place. At first I was horrified, because I'm not a cripple. But he said it would be for a higher purpose because it would allow me to keep fundraising without getting wiped out. He said the wheelchair isn't permanent. Just a few days, maybe a week or so, until my strength returns.
I decided to give it a try. I made $187. The team average was $123, the first time it's been that high in a while.
