My Journey

Welcome to my page. I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease 4 1/2 years ago (just before my 33 birthday). This past year, a group of my friends, family, and I ran in an endurance run to raise funds towards awareness and finding a cure for this neurological disorder. This year, we would love to organize a race soley for this purpose. I will share my story as I try to run, and give you details on how our racing plans are going. Thanks for sharing my journey with me:o)

First 5k race for the year.

Well, I did it. Today Matt and I ran in the Law day race. I was nervous because lately, everytime I run, my foot dystonia gets the best of me. I had a goal today to run under 30. I am so tired of running in the 30's it drives me crazy! Especially since I was a 22 runner...I know, I Know, I'm not 16 anymore, but hey, It's not like I'm 80 either! Last year, I barely made it out of the 30 minutes, I think maybe twice I ran a high 29.

So, today I lined up with my hubby, and set out to reach my goal. Well...I am here to tell you that I did it! Not the best time, but it is my best in about 2 years! Today I ran a 28:31 with no dystonia cramping at all! What a great day:o) For this I am giving all of the glory to God!
