Fall has to be the best time of year!

MissyFoy -

Friday, October 16, 2015 I have always loved Fall!  It is definitely my favorite season … but Spring runs a really close second … and when Spring arrives I always say that Spring is my fave and Fall comes second.  Whatever, so I change my mind sometimes. One of the reasons that I came to […]

Looking back should be joyous, not painful

MissyFoy -

Thursday, June 13, 2015 I talked to my old coach on the phone yesterday.  His oldest had just graduated from high school earlier in the day.  I was certain he was lying because there was no way that much time could have passed.  It was really, really good to talk to him, even though it […]

Spending a couple afternoons at Duke Hospital

MissyFoy -

Sunday, February 22, 2015 I went through my first IVIg treatments for this SPS thing on Thursday and Friday over at Duke.  It was both interesting and boring at the same time.  Now, we wait … of course. Bob insisted on a picture, which is kind of funny because what do you think he did […]

How do you prepare yourself to start a new kind of life?

MissyFoy -

Thursday, January 22, 2015 I figured I would start with this picture of me and my oldest brother, Kevin, because I look so believable and honest in this picture.  That, I thought, could set the tone.  I’m really just kidding … sort of. There are a lot of levels to a question like this, right?  […]

Learning to Live with Stiff Person Syndrome

MissyFoy -

Thursday, January 15, 2015 So, that is what this thing is called:  Stiff Person Syndrome.  Weird name for a weird disease.  I don’t want to have this.  I want it to go away and never come back. It scares me.  I scares my husband.  It scares the rest of my family.  I was running (and […]

A New Year, a New Level of Optimism?

MissyFoy -

Friday, January 2, 2015 The is me and my friend/neighbor, Boston Lisa, waiting for the new year to arrive the other night.  There’s a long story behind her nick-name, but I won’t bore anyone with that. We all got together to ring in the new year and to pay our respects to one of our close friends, […]

How it’s going

MissyFoy -

Tuesday, December 2, 2014 I wanted to come up with some catchy title for this post, but I couldn’t.  I’m kind of lacking on mental energy these days and that was, well, the best I could do. So, how is it going? Some days are okay and some days, well, not so much. Let’s take […]

The Blog Post I Never Thought I’d Have to Write

MissyFoy -

Tuesday, November 25, 2014 I’ll start out with something on the upside: I got my first ever pair of LuluLemon running capris and although Bob thought the large side pockets were ideal for a phone, I was thrilled that I could fit an entire honey bun in the pocket!  The response from one friend of […]

The Emily K Center

MissyFoy -

Saturday, October 18, 2014 The Emily K Center is a center for disadvantaged youth that tries to open possibilities for them through educational support.  The center is named after Coach K’s mother Emily Kryzyzewski.  Yes, I spelled it right. I had the great opportunity yesterday to attend one of Duke’s basketball practices along with a […]

DPRT 50 Miler … a bust.

MissyFoy -

Tuesday, October 23, 2012 Des Plaines River Trail Race 50 Miler – October 20, 2012 I went to Chicago with big goals. The short version: I didn’t meet my big goals. While I’m incredibly disappointed with how the race turned out – or, rather, didn’t turn out – I still feel fortunate to be in […]
