Sorry, her name is Peony Munger. She had fibromyalgia and arthritis when she did her 1,000 miles. Her records and announcement of her death are on the bottom of the second page. In the middle of the thread is some useless arguing.

hey there say, yosemite 5.9(will fix the numbers, i forgot them--just did now)...

thanks for sharing, sometimes folks really DO need to see that they can do stuff, even if it is not everyday type stuff, but this encoureges folks to just 'do' when sometimes they sure feel like 'not' as to many things...

i will go read it..

:)


nice, too, for her to leave something specail for her family or grandkids to share about what was specail to her...

:)


edit:
oh my, yep--saw the useless argueing, very sad, :(
