Julie has danced her whole life and taught at her own dance school for over 30 years. When she developed Alzheimer’s, however, she had a harder time teaching and staying active in the way she always loved. Her husband, Peter, has supported her as they’ve adjusted to how life is changing. Together, they took up running as a way to stay active and socialise with the wider community.
How Julie Gets Moving
Julie and Peter took up running with a club in their local community. They started by using the Couch to 5K app, which helped them build up to longer jogs around the park. Joining a club can provide a welcoming and sociable way to get a bit of activity into your day, and even a bit of motivation to keep going back each week!
