Yesterday was the Parkinson's half marathon and 5k in Cottage Grove, WI. This was my second year running the 5k in honor of a high school classmate, Chris, who has the disease. Wow, what a group of supporters he has. It's amazingly cool! I placed 148th overall and 6th in my age category. Chris walked and ran the 3.1 miles and wanted to beat 45 min. and he did! Great job, Chris!
I am a late bloomer in the fitness world. At the age of 45 I received my group fitness instructor certification and two years later my health coaching certification.
