Our daughter (38) set a half marathon course record this weekend losing only to a 21-year-old male competitor. It wasn't huge, about 400 competitors. It was fun for her to be interviewed after for local media. But, I feel like we got the priz... Read more

It has been a joy and a challenge to walk more and more steps on average since I was suddenly able to walk 10,000 steps consistently nearly four months ago. I thought that would never happen due to restrictions of ms and the fact that both feet... Read more

No, I'm not heading to some tropical island or on some amazing trip around the world. I'm just going to visit my two sweet granddaughters ages 7 and almost 5. I get to visit them via Skype now and then, but there is nothing like a hug and then... Read more

Some days I feel so invisible. It seems the people in my life who I really need to be there are not able to be for so many reasons. So, despite having people around I can feel very lonely. This has been a challenging week on many levels so I ... Read more

It's been a joy to be outdoors this week and it will be even warmer in the days to come. I've gotten in extra walking and strength training lately. Am hoping I can continue day by day without any interruptions. As my husband recovers from sur... Read more
