After battling weight and health issues for years, I have finally found my road to good health. My journey has been a lot like others out there. I have lived the late night partying with friends, and have been sucked into the fast food paradox that towers over all of us. I have also had the unique situation of having a physical hurdle called Cerebral Palsy to conquer. I don’t call it a disability, because I do not find myself to be disabled in any way. I simply have side-roads that I have had to veer toward, in order to do the things that others can do with ease. I have looked in the mirror and not only not liked what I have seen, but have been so lost for so long as to what to do to fix myself.
I was so lost for so long, and lost a lot of years being unhealthy inside and out. That ends – now.
After dropping the weight the first few months of 2010, thanks to walking, running, P90x, and to my Bodybugg, I decided that I needed a new challenge. I started to feel as if I had some sort of higher calling. I wanted to inspire people to get active, especially those who think that they will never reach their health and physical goals. What could I do, that would make people take notice and really light a little fire in their belly?
Take on the challenge of endurance running!
Hey if I can get out there and commit to running with a screwy hip, leg, and foot, then what excuse do you healthy bodied people have? Hmmmm…. not much of one!
