I have never considered myself a "RUNNER" in any sense of the word, I wasn't born a runner, I used to run in high school, I have run on occasion but to say I "RUN", was not an option till now.

I was unable to walk, I had difficulty speaking as well as limited use of my left arm. Fast forward the 8 months, once I began to walk and have use of the balance of my body, the doctors told me that I was not suppose to run/exercise etc. I refused to allow their words define me. I have since excercised
