Saturday 16th April 2011

What a way to start my Birthday ,our marathon group met at 6.30am in Howth to climb to the summit alon the cliff head .As Loraine and I were driving out to meet the rest of the gans the sun was rising in the sky like a large orane flame .Whoy would you want to have a lie on and miss htat amazing experience.
We were going on a two and a half hour walk our last long walk before the Limerick half marathon in two weeks .
When I reached the summit on Saturday I had an overwhlmin sense of achievment and was so rateful to Jason and al the others (not foretting Molly) for all the support and effort they are also putting in .
I can’t believe the journey this disease has taken me on it has been a roller coaster both emotionally and physically but I can see huge changes in me ,Niki said to me the other day I just cannot believe you are 55 !!!
So next week ia Prkinsosn Awarenees week and we need to get out there and tell peolpe abput tis disease .How many of you have a mother ,father ,ranny ,or garndad at home ,who does not want to nbe seen becuase of thei physical appearandc as a rexsult of the diasease .They are still the same peson on the inside looking our t at the world from a different perspective now with this diseaes.
W eneed your support to encourage us to exercise ans look after our selves to keep as weel l as possible while manaing thi sdisease .
We need to manage Parkinsons we do not need it to manage us
