young lady with a parasol

Pushing Patti and her wheelchair around a park near her care facility yesterday we both stared as a 20 something young lady with a sun parasol strolled by us.

It felt like two eras of time passing each other, it was kind of cool.

With a few days of rare Fall weather in late August I could actually include Patti in my training for Free To Breath Lung Cancer 5K Run/Walk Harrisburg this Saturday. Believe me after years of MS Walks it is certainly weird to be involved in an event about my own health.

Monday while cool temperatures was unfortunately rainy so training adjourned to that indoor park, Walmart. Tuesday was a stunningly gorgeous sunny and Multiple Sclerosis friendly afternoon.

Our outing/training even had it’s own unique version of the Boston Marathon’s Heartbreak Hill as the sidewalk from park back to Patti’s care facility is a block straight up pushing an occupied wheelchair  … the only way to finish!
