I am giving up on a goal

Leave a comment

The goal was to be on foot for 2000 miles, according to the Charity Miles application, in 2019.

I take my goal setting very seriously. This failure is not about willpower, it’s about time and priorities.

Sports and dementia?

Leave a comment

The guide has been developed in partnership with input from across the sports sector and people living with dementia, with National Lottery funding from Sport England. It is designed to help the sport and physical activity sector to support – and empower – people who are living with dementia to lead active lives and remain independent for as long as possible.

Your encouragement has inspired me to persevere. Ever since you met me, your patience, kindness and thoughtfulness, has never waned, not once. Your manner cultivates the learning process, and it’s uncanny how clearly you see.

Once in awhile, when I get mentally stuck, I wonder what you would do.

Thank you very much . . .

No map for my life

Leave a comment

Yes, I would have liked to have seen a map that would describe all of the twists and turns of my life, beforehand. Maybe I could have made some better decision, maybe not. But that didn’t happen, no map. So, I did what I thought was my best, at the most important tasks, every day, all day, still do.

I haven’t been to the places in the two pictures above, but, I have been to many places, with beautiful views. One of the things that troubles me is the desire to always go back, visit again.

Dr. Cooper on Alzheimer’s

Leave a comment

Dr. Kenneth H. Cooper, founder of the world-renowned Cooper Clinic, has been involved in health research and fitness for more than 50 years. “It is much easier, less costly and more effective to maintain good health than it is to regain it once it is lost. Preventing disease is the mission of Cooper Clinic and has been for nearly 50 years. The concept of prevention also applies to Alzheimer’s disease. Since many neurological diseases including Alzheimer’s have an incubation period of several decades along with the fact billions of research dollars have been spent unsuccessfully in trying to find a cure for Alzheimer’s, it is mandatory that we shift our focus and concentrate more on preventing or at least delaying the onset of this disease,” says Kenneth H. Cooper, MD, MPH.

stuff about my miles

Leave a comment

Approximately 3000 Journey miles, pushing a jogging stroller full, every day with supplies and gear, and all alone, no vehicle, no other folks.

Approximately 19,000 miles on foot since June 1, 2012. Every mile was designed to raise money, awareness or both, for a charity.

Approximately 40,000 miles in a car wearing signs, advertising the Alzheimer’s Association 24/7 Helpline. All of these miles were driven to reach meetings where Alzheimer’s would be discussed.

Almost 7000 miles, on foot, using the Charity Miles application.
