THE STORY:

To this day, my neurologists don't know why I had my strokes. What we do know is that at 28, I suffered two strokes, the first while on a training run for the Portland Marathon, which left me paralyzed completely on my left side. I couldn’t sit up by myself, much less walk.  Through the INCREDIBLE support of my husband, family, friends, and team of neurologists and therapists (occupational and physical), I was able to recover from this setback. I spent 3 weeks in hospitals and 5 months in intensive rehab. Each day I gained strength and saw progress, though it wasn’t always easy.

The research says that after a stroke, your recovery window is 6 months. What you don’t regain in 6 months, you are likely to not ever regain. With that 6 month mark in sight, I set a goal of full recovery and charged ahead. My aim was to: run outside for 3 miles, type with both hands, drive and go back to work. At 5 months, I was running, I was typing, I was driving and I was back at work full time. By all technical measures, I had fully recovered.

But I wasn’t going to stop there – why not set goals for the next 6 months? So I set a goal to run a half marathon before the 1 year anniversary of my stroke. I'm cutting it close by running the San Francisco half marathon on July 29 -just 12 days before the first anniversary of my stroke.

I am raising money to support the National Stroke Association which aids in the prevention, awareness and recovery of stroke. I hope you’ll join me in this endeavor!
