Congratulations, BIGTIME, Rob! You're definitely going the right direction.

I have a friend who's 67 and preparing to run his 26th (or is it his 30th?) marathon. He was diagnosed in 1986 with young onset Parkinson's Disease and ran his first marathon ten years after that when his company became a race sponsor. His neurologist figures that his activity along with his attitude about the disease ("it's an inconvenience") keeps him from succumbing to it. He's an inspiration to many because he keeps going and he talks about it.

Keep OT posts like this one coming, Rob, and inspire us to keep going along with you!
