On today’s show, we have our new friend and Run a Myelin My Shoes teammate, Emily Reilly. Emily is originally from Flagstaff, AZ but currently resides in the Washington DC area. Emily is proud air force wife and dog mom. She has lived with MS for over 13 years now and refuses to let this disease stop her. Amid the challenges that come with living with MS, she attributes her joy and hope to her faith in Jesus!
After graduating from college, she became a military spouse and quickly realized the lack of adaptive exercise classes for those living with MS. This prompted her to become a certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor to create and provide adaptive fitness classes for her local MS community and encourage others that "no matter what your limitation, you can keep moving".
Emily now works for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and continues the fight on the front lines to help end MS forever.
