Running with RA

Recently I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. While I'm still processing this diagnosis and working to integrate it into my consciousness, I'm combing through all the information I can find to make good decisions for myself. Information is power! I decided to create this page for other athletes who might be in a similar situation. Remember to take everything you read with a grain of salt. Just as there is no one training plan that works for every runner, there is no one size fits all treatment plan for RA patients. You should always consult with your medical provider before trying anything new.

This page will continually be under construction as I add/delete things as I find them. If you have a particular resource you want to share with me, please contact me at!
