Marilyn has reached her first objective – a virtual walk of 13 km to the next town!  So what?  If you don’t know who Marilyn is, this just seems like an ordinary “Congratulations!”  If you know her, though, you’ll know that she has seven grandchildren and she has been dealing with Parkinson’s disease now for about ten years.  She has a walker to help her get around, and she lives most days with stiff and sore muscles.

So here’s what:  We are totally proud of her and of the example she is setting.  She is inspiration in action.  Hey – that would make a great T-Shirt!

By the way, after celebrating her accomplishment with a glass of orange juice, she starts tomorrow on her trek to the next town, a distance of 24 km.
