When Cheryl Hile’s neurologist told her to “lower her expectations”, the marathon runner showed that she was an FUMS’er to her core. Adopting the mantra “I do what I can and never give up”, she has now completed 56 (FIFTY-SIX!!!) marathons, 41 following her diagnosis.

After running 7 marathons on 7 continents in 12 months, Cheryl founded the running and walking team Run A Myelin My Shoes to challenge the perception that strenuous exercise is bad for MS.

Listen in as I chat with this amazing MS Warrior and even get strong-armed into taking part in the 2021 event!

Topics covered in this episode include:

  • Cheryl’s pre-MS life including running marathons on vacation with her husband
  • Her first MS symptoms and THAT neurologist conversation
  • How she founded Run A Myelin My Shoes after meeting MSers who ran or wanted to run
  • Why you don’t have to run to get involved with Run A Myelin My Shoes!
  • Details of how you can get involved with the 2021 event, regardless of where you live
