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)

That's what I'm talking about!!

So my summer goal this year was to run in the Biggest Loser Half Marathon with my hubby Matt and my bff Debbie. Training was hard. Once we started getting into the longer runs, my body protested - ALOT! I ended up adding a med before my runs to help from getting dystonic, and that seemed to help.

A summer full of many many runs, finally the big day had come! This would be the test of all tests! Started out feeling really really good. Around mile 10 it got pretty rough, I'm not gonna lie. At mile 12, I was blessed to have a spectator console me as I cried because I didn't think I was ever gonna make it. Then I cried once again as I did the unimaginable...I CROSSED THE FINISH LINE! PD was not the victor on this day! I overcame with the help of my hubby, my running partner, and all of the people out there who believed in me when I didn't believe in myself! (shame on me!)

If I had any advice to give, it would be to never give in to circumstances...they may make things hard, but certainly not impossible!

Phil 4:13 I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me!


  1. I love you angie and Im so proud of you!

  2. Awesome and inspiring. Can I ask you which medicine you added that helped with the dystonia?
