You've probably read more than you can stand about fibromyalgia, but I thought that Barb Briley had some interesting articles. The link where I started was suite101.com: http://www.suite101.com/articles.cfm/cop ing_fibromyalgia
Thanks for the encouragement! :) That's all it takes sometimes for me to go from "What do I think I'm doing?!" to using that very thing as a foundation for a long desired direction in life :) I don't know how soon I'll be in a mass of other walkers, but it's something that I can certainly reach for. It even adheres to goals in other areas of my life! Look for me; I'll be there someday :)
Hi there! I saw your comment too and I noticed you were new. I did the Commit To Be Fit 5K and it was my first organized fitness event EVER. I lined up in the proper spot which was clearly marked WALKERS. I had no problem and didn't feel I was in the way of the Elite Runners. They crossed the start line at least 7 min ahead of me. Now I'm scouring the net looking for more 5K's! I want to be up there with the runners soon.
I hope to see you participating in one in the near future. You could start with the New Albany Walking Classic in the fall. It is a 10K but there are no runners that I know of.
