      Well, you did 3 miles today, so a bit of training, and tomorrow can be the day you don't totally give up? Hope tomorrow is improved.

      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!!

      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???
