Photos – Donna Deegan 5K – 2013

Running was a sport, passion, I had just reintroduced in my life when Stiff Person Syndrome symptoms destroyed my world, as I knew it.  That was over 20+ years ago.  With a lot of determination and prayer, daily I work on me.  I wanted to independently walk some of the river trails, walking paths, and scenic city sidewalks.  I bought a jogging stroller in January, an all-terrain surrogate walker.

I thought I would try to do a 5K sometime this year.  From that seed of an idea, Rare Disease Day came to mind.  The Donna Deegan Marathon for Breast Cancer, which includes a 5K, was in sync with my Rare Disease Day (2/28/2013) goal for awareness/advocacy.  I will write a few blog posts about the challenges training for this event entailed.

The 5K blogs begin with my guest blog on NORD:
