A Good Idea?

In my last post, a little ‘tongue in cheek’ I began to wonder why I ever thought this challenge was a good idea.

Having recovered from today’s training (more about that later), there are many reasons why this challenge is a good idea:

  • I’m supporting a fantastic charity The Cure Parkinson’s Trust which funds research which has the potential to slow, stop or reverse Parkinson’s
  • I have Parkinson’s
  • The quest to find a cure, provides hope to over 10 million people worldwide, living with Parkinson’s
  • Hope is a precious gift
  • Exercise has been shown to slow down the progression of Parkinson’s
  • Five years after a diagnosis of Parkinson’s, it is great to feel that such a huge challenge is within my reach
  • Along with the other people with Parkinson’s doing this challenge, we can perhaps inspire others to exercise (although not necessarily to such an extreme!)
  • Exercise is good for the mind, body and soul
  • I want to be a positive role model for my children
  • I have developed a LOVE of cycling
  • I am lucky to have wonderful friends to cycle with
  • Life is short, we should do what’s important to us while we can
  • I like to have a challenge
  • It’s fun!

Of Course it’s a Good Idea!
