Thank You

A gentleman who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in December 2013 started on PIPmix in May 2014. Six weeks later this was his message:

I have spent the last week and a half in the North Lakes, we are regular visitors as we both enjoy fell walking not to mention our dogs :). We were last here in April, the most I could achieve without a short rest was 300 metres, inclines were extremely painful in the lower back and left leg.

During this stay we have walked most days on alternate days we pushed the boundaries 3 miles then 5 miles culminating in yesterday over 7 miles and 20,000+ steps in 4.5 hours, if I am honest only two miles today as a little sore in places but that’s to be expected 🙂 . I can’t tell you how unbelievable I feel thinking my days of fell walking were over to have enjoyed this break so much, could it be magic or PIP?

We return home on Tuesday if you would be kind enough to post out my next scrumptious jar please I would be grateful.
