DAY JOB: Defying anyone who tells her she can't!
I one day woke up with a numb elbow after swimming, it continued to travel and cause pain randomly. Two doctors later I was told I needed to have surgery due to a cervical disk in my neck. It was pressing on my spinal cord. I was numb inside and terrified. I didn't know how I would come out on the other side, so I made the bold decision to continue to train for my marathon. My goal was to complete it prior to my 50th birthday. Despite knowing that any fall could cause me to become paralyzed. I was determined. I ran that 26.2 miles, I finished feeling determined and strong two days to turning 50. I had my surgery a week later and continued to run, bike climb and everything that I continue to enjoy in my active life. I have since had needed another surgery and continue to move my body. I will continue to defy anyone that tells me I can't. My words of wisdom are to live every day, don't stop because life it too short. I believe in myself and I wear that on my id. I continue to take on my fears of height, water and every year prior to each birthday I make a point to "do something that scares me".
