Fulfill a personal goal...That is the theme for my Longest Day, June 21st 2017 activity. As I continue to visit my mom as much as possible at the memory care home, I see and witness how Alzheimer's disease is not just for seniors, not just for the old. There are several residents that are younger than 65, and possibly younger than 60. "Why wait?".
Personally, I like to focus on a physical activity because physical fitness is so important for overall health. But, I encourage you to fulfill any type of goal, it does not have to be a physical activity.
One of my goals is to do another triathlon. I am planning and hoping to complete a 24 lap swim and possibly a 24 mile bike ride (we'll see if I can get my biking legs going) on the morning of the 21st and a 2.4 mile sunset walk. I encourage all of you, TEAM JOY, to work towards fulfilling a goal. For those of you local or far (I have guest rooms), please join me for a 2.4 mile walk before sunset, around Waneka Lake (a block from my house). After our walk, lets celebrate at my house with desserts and a champagne toast to health, achievements, memories, family, friends, life.
I want to share a quote from a line in the movie Easy A. As Stanley Tucci is knocking off movies to watch on his bucket list, he says "Then lets bucket list this bitch". While working on our own "bucket list", we are taking care of ourselves, honoring those fighting this disease and helping raise funds to support caregivers and research. Eventually we will find a cure, let's "bucket list" this disease.
