I am not lost, I am exploring

I reached my goal of completing 4 HMs in 2014! Wow, did that look daunting before I ran my first one in March! Now I plan to repeat in 2015!

Running is a passion for me now. I began road running, at age 52, in March of 2013, after walking for 2 years. I say I am running from Dementia, since I am leading a healthier lifestyle to prevent the onset of Alz. Rigorous activity is a deterrent to the onset of dementia. I care for my mother with Alzheimer's, who inspires me every day. ...

Thank you for the Spark Goodie and Emotional Support. Caregiving for an elder parent is not easy. She seems to be better now.. I gave her a pain med, some Chamomile Organic Tea with Coconut Oil. Thank Goodness her blood pressure came down after 45 minutes. I was ready to take her to the ER for fear she was having a Heart Attack. Well, as I was typing, I ended up calling 911. She started having confusion, gagging etc. Thank goodness they did EKG. It seems like all is well at least with heart etc. Will call dentist and doctor tomorrow. Thanks again.

Thanks, I'm not terribly upset. I haven't been training hard and wasn't going to run it for time. Plus there's a concert in Austin on Saturday that I was sorry to be missing. That made the decision easier.

I ran Space Coast with several of my running group friends, first marathon for two out of the three. I helped one of them get through the race, which meant slowing down a lot (for me) while pushing her to do her best. Quite an experience and very satisfying!
