Approaching their wedding anniversary, this Dallas couple decided to celebrate in an unusual way. Starting in their North Dallas suburb, they WALKED 1000 miles in 100 days to the town of Akron, Indiana, where they said their vows on July 4th, 50 years earlier. But before making the walk, there were some personal obstacles to overcome. They were both over 65; he was waging war with a disabling arthritis that had plagued him for nearly 40 years and she worked at a desk most of the time. Neither was prepared for the walk of a lifetime. But with faith, friends, and changing some life-habits, they not only challenged the road ahead of them but altered the course of their future. Along the way, they made some surprising discoveries, met new friends, and found the heart of America’s heartland. Now, they share some of the adventure, some of the startling truths about health management, and encourage others to Challenge the Road Ahead of them.
