      KEEP FIGHTING! You can do it! I have a neighbor diagnosed 20+ years ago with Parkinsons (when he was ~20 years old). He lived with that for over 15 years, but then started investigating it and treating himself with some of what he'd learned about Lyme's disease, and once he got hooked up with a great specialist out of KC, he has been healthy for over five years. It can be beat. Take good care of yourself, and do what you can to soothe the frustrated athlete within. She'll come back strong!!

  3. Just asking for a friend what app do your have/use on your iPhone that will easily upload to Daily Mile?

      Hey Marlene! I use Electric Miles, it's the best app for direct uploading of workouts/photos. Everyone else I know uses it as well.

      I have zero input here because I don't use anything, but I am curious why you are asking. I'm *hoping* it's because you want to log miles of some form or another....? Which means I'm hoping this means good things for you???

      Marlene - get better and get back to all of it. As much as I know you love being an athlete, don't give up or give in. Take care of yourself and keep looking for answers. Your enthusiasm and support is so infectious (infectious in a good way :) - can't wait to see you back at full strength. Take good care - best to you from TX

      OMG Marlene!! I hope they find answers soon!! If you have to ake a step back, I think most everyone will understand. From the posts, I think you have a healthy set of friends/acquaintances here. The primary thing is get well and bug the crap out of the doctors until you get answers. Thoughts and prayers your way :-) (((((positive vibes))))

      Hang in there Marlene! I know you have been having tons of issues for a while. It is so frustrating heading to the Dr., dealing with insurance companies, and that on top of not being able to work out as you would like to. Please feel free to vent all you want, we all understand!

      Really nice ride! Get Fred's pedal fixed, that is a priority! Good luck with the PT and the lipty/spin work. You can do this! I hope we can meet up for Army 10 weekend. My team will be doing a dinner on Saturday night if you would like to come and meet up.
