About

Hi, I’m Sandi.

For seven years I suffered from undiagnosed Conn’s Syndrome which left me tired and weak. In 2007, my doctors finally discovered that I had a tumor on my right adrenal gland and right away scheduled me for surgery. I was advised to limit my movement as I could lose potassium via perspiration which could mean death.

By the grace of God, Conn’s Syndrome is now a thing of the past. So at the age of 43, I started running. At 45, I ran my first marathon (that’s 42.195 kilometers!).

Every year I run a marathon and as of writing I have already finished three: The Bull Runner Dream Marathon 2013 and 2014, and the Condura Skyway Marathon 2015.

I started this blog in 2011 because I wanted to journal my run adventures and misadventures. I still have issues regarding my health but God has proven Himself faithful. He has sustained me and I am truly amazed.

I have also learned that food is medicine and that a clean body means a happy and healthy body and mind. I am now conscious of what I eat and have embraced the lifestyle of eating real and whole food.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I invite you to join me as I continue my journey towards a healthier tomorrow.

  1. I have Osteoarthritis throughout my spine and have just been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. They believe I’ve had it for 8 years. I really want to get back into at least walking but along with a concussion I can’t do anything that can increase the heart rate. But I look at you and see inspiration. 🙂 I like your About. 🙂
