And YAY for Motivational Monday!
It’s time to get back to the grind in preparation for the holiday season while staying focused at the same time! You can play hard, but remembering to work hard is key!
And the swag I won from the Women’s Running group was great motivation for me to focus on getting back to running soon! Along with spectating – again yesterday – I’m eager to get back to running for sure! I ended up at the Brandon Half marathon to not only cheer on the runners but to help some friends finish up their first half marathon! I knew what it was like to have someone be there when I needed it – on more than on occasion – and didn’t mind paying it forward!
To keep the motivation going this Monday – this week’s Featured Sneakers [who belong to Gelcys, a fellow Sweatpink sister & Run Disney gal who inspires others through her journey with running and Scoliosis] is sure to INSPIRE. I’ll let her tell her story in her words as it’s best told that way:
“I am 31 years old married with a little terror I can’t imagine life without. When I was 15 I was diagnosed with severe Scoliosis where I had to get immediate corrective surgery. It took 14 hours in the OR and MONTHS of recovery to learn to walk, sit, stand and sleep. Obviously I was told I couldn’t run again =( I had metal rods and screws fused to my spine to keep my spine from further curving. A few months after surgery I was in the passenger seat and was in a car accident where we were hit from behind. Since I was so fresh out of surgery the metal rods had no where to go but out of place out of my back. It hurt like nothing I have ever experienced! I had another surgery to correct that, since it was towards the bottom they just removed that piece.
