AIDS MARATHONER GOES CROSS-COUNTRY...

...Give me your tired, your poor... poetic words that had welcomed millions of immigrants to American soil. Would they have included AIDS sufferers? Surely not, but I'm here now and can't be sent back, nor can I be silenced. My running shoes may be all that I have left but I'm off and running in as many states as my running shoes will permit. Invite me to speak at your college, AIDS charities, business luncheons and you'll get an earful, two months' worth, September and October. Just because I'm HIV positive, don't expect me to pack it in. The only thing I'm packing is plenty of running gear to deal with any weather. You journalists, professors, radio interviewers, whoever you are...you're invited to keep up with me but it's doubtful you'll be able to. After all, I'm turning 50 and am afflicted with a life-threatening illness: AIDS. Just don't tell my body that. My body is deaf to the doomsayers who think I already have one foot in the grave.

Whether it's running a marathon, going cross-country, or sharing my just released memoir, Jodi, The Greatest Love Story Ever Told, I will not be grounded. My story will be told and retold, my feet will be worn and tired, and I will continue to run marathons until the world takes note. AIDS sufferers can beat this illness providing we get the AIDS medicine.
