More about me
I am 65 with 2 daughters and 3 grandchildren. I have parkinsons disease but I am stil trying to run as much as I can. I have run 10 out of 11
Marathons in under 3hr . 30 mins.
My best time was in 1992 ( age 52 ).
My last marathon was in 1997 and soon after in 1999 I discovered that I had the disease. This affected my ability to take part in any sort of event and I eventually retired from competitive running in 2003. I am
determined to run/walk at least one
more marathon to prove that
disabilities can be overcome if you are determined enough.
