Portland Marathon Finisher!
October 10, 2016

I know it's awfully close to the TCA New York Marathon.  However,  I was already registered as I thought this would be my last race.   I chose  See more
Angel Crowe

THE STORY:

I experienced an ischemic stroke 9/27/15.  This was three days before a scheduled complete ACL repair on my right knee.  Thankfully, (grateful to be able to approach it like this), it happened before I was in surgery.

Portland, OR is my hometown.  I'm a mom, a wife, and a dog mom.  I manage a family practice for the work part of life (my husband is the physician).  For fun;  I'm on a women's dragon boat team, Rip City Paddlers, I run to get more of that energy out, I attempt to golf, & I'm active in other areas of the fitness community.  I exercise because I love the way it feels, it helps with my anxiety, and my love of pastries and ice cream.  I enjoy going to Portland Trail Blazer games, gardening, and I love cooking and eating.

There is still no indication as to why I had a stroke.  I am very active, very healthy.  I was very fortunate to have been golfing with my husband who was able to get me to OHSU in a timely manner so I could receive the tPA medication.  Initially, I lost movement on my right side.  I lost my speech but that part recovered pretty quickly.    My movement was readily available, slow, but available.  I started occupational & speech therapy.  My dragon boat community was extremely supportive and by my side so my husband could go to work and I could stay home and learn how to rest.

My desire (and absolute honor), is to be able to run as a stroke survivor.  I want to be an example of a young, healthy woman who experienced an ischemic stroke.  I'm a young, mostly healthy woman who still has no indications as to the causes of the ischemic stroke.  I am so grateful that my recovery has far surmounted any of my expectations.  I am still working on the healing aspect of the emotional component, and that is one of the most difficult things I have come across. 

Running this marathon, is a dream I didn't think I had but it is certainly a dream I am grateful to be able to do.  I had a goal of completing the Portland marathon this year (my knee creates limitations), I had no idea that I would be able to be a part of the New York marathon and help raise money for the National Stroke Association.  

Each day further away from 09/27/15, I am grateful.
