5 woman one man and his dog have been preparing for the Limerick half Marathon 2011and yesterday we completed it .I got up yesterday morning at 6 am stiff and slow and started the usual medication routine to get me going .I headed down to the reception of the hotel to sit and read my book at 6.30 the hotel overlooks the river and the view is beautiful.
When I arrived down to reception I was greeted to a rendition of The Fields of Athenry from one of the stag parties resident in the Hotel I smiled what different worlds we can live in I was just starting my day they were finishing theirs.
We had breakfast and then the 6 of us myself Jason ,Lorraine,Loraine .Adrienne,and Jane with support form my hubby Michael and my son David and Una Anderson Ryan from the Parkinson’s Association (an amazing lady who has done so much to highlight the needs of people with Parkinson’s) .
We had lots of photos taken and were glad to get going at 11.30am .We walked the half marathon in 3 hours 41 minutes we were all brilliant.To Jason (an incredible personal trainer ) and all the girls I could not have done it without your incredible support ,the highlight for me was walking over the finish line with all six of us .(Photos to follow ).We walked the walk yesterday to raise awareness about Parkinson’s if our Marathon touched just one person then we will have made a difference .
Thanks guys you are all amazing people !
