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)

Gearing up for the running season.

Well, the running season is upon us, and I have only ran 3 times so far. But, the good news is my knee injury from our car accident is getting better! I do not feel any pain while running - I still have my dystonia problem, but the cramping isn't starting until about the mile mark, so I am getting a good first mile run in atleast!

I am currently up to 2 mi. It will probably be end of June, beginning of July until I am in shape to run my first race for the season. If Parkinson's has taught me nothing else, it has definitely taught me how to be patient, and to appreciate everything. I am blessed to be able to run and I will continue to do for as long as God allows.
