About the Author

John Ball has been a runner all his life, but didn't take up the marathon until late. Since turning 50, he has completed 10 solo marathons and several team efforts. Ball plans to run at least one more marathon: the March 2005 Los Angeles Marathon will mark his 10th consecutive year in the event in spite of Parkinson's disease. He was diagnosed in 1983, at age 39. Ball lives in southern California with his wife Edna and their Airedale terrier, Scrabble. He is an advocate for the Parkinson's Action Network, and enjoys opportunities to share his positive message with Parkinson's disease support groups around the country. John and Edna serve as the National Co-chairs of Team Parkinson.

Format: Paperback
My husband, age 67 with Parkinson's, spotted a mention of the author John Ball in his monthly Runner's Magazine. We "googled" John and found this book. Since my husband is a runner he related tremendously with John and was very uplifted by reading his book. This story stresses the benefits of both exercise and community in battling Parkinson's Disease. A good read, especially for anyone interested in running. I am not, but wanted to share the book with my husband. I'm glad I did as John is all about not only hope, but enthusiam for life.
