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)

New challenge

I have been inspired. I saw a video of a woman who had a goal to walk again. She practiced everyday and was able to reteach herself how to walk again. It was a story off of a website encouraging people to make goals and give 100 percent of themselves. So like I said, I have been inspired to give my all. My goal... To run 5k in under 30 min by our 3rd annual Parkinson's run.

I started running in may and logging runs and races since July. So far I have put in 136 miles and ran 8 races including a half marathon. My times starting out were 36 min for a 5 k. I have dropped to 31 min for 5k so far. I have 5 months to accomplish this goal!! NOTHING is impossible!

  1. Good for you for running with PD! I am a 40 year old woman who is an active runner, too, but I'm worried about some recent symptoms that have developed (pinky finger tremor, fatigue with a bit of depression and lack of motivation, and heaviness in limbs). What your your initial symptoms of PD like? Thanks so much and God Bless!
