Over coming my health and disabilities to enjoy running! All my life I have been told everything I cannot do…NO running, no jumping, no skiing, No climbing, basically everything to do outside. I had to watch the other kids. I thank the Lord for giving such a great mom who never took NO seriously. The doctors said ” She will never walk again” they were wrong. Then they said ” she will be in a wheel chair by the age of 22. They were wrong. Then the Dr’s said She will be in a wheel chair by the age of 40 guess what, Still wrong! At age 18-21, I learned to snow ski and water ski, I love the outdoors and hiking up hills. At age 22 I gave birth to a beautiful little girl, and ended up with peripartum cardiomyapathy. Now at the age of 41, I am running and loving it. My health issues started at 3 years old with Rye Syndrome Disease. I barely survived and the steroids that were given to me stunted the growth in my tendons. I have had many surgeries to lengthen the tendons in my legs. Also my ankle joints are locked to the point that I have only 9% movement in one foot up and down and the last surgery on one leg gave me 12% movement up and down on my other leg. there is no scientific proof that I can walk. But my moms faith and my faith in our Lord, have made everything the doctors say not true. The Lord gave me the ability to walk, and to run, and showed me that nothing is impossible.
