One last blog before I set out tomorrow to take part in my first marathon. It’s nearly eight years since I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and I had it I reckon for a couple of years before that. I can’t believe I am doing the marathon but managing and understanding this chronic condition is the key for me. I am thrilled to be receiving the Lord Mayors medal tomorrow in recognition of the effort it has taken me to get here. This medal is not just for me it is for my family, friends, supporters and especially all the people with Parkinson’s and their families and carers that I have met over the last number of years who have touched my heart in so many ways.
As we will be walking we will take about 7 hours if anyone would like to support us on the last leg we will be on the Stillorgan Road at around 4 pm or anywhere else en route.
