46, Bethany

When I was little l was hit by a pickup truck. I had to learn to walk again, and I was told by doctors that I would need to use a wheelchair. By the time I was in high school, I’d had 52 surgeries. I found that when I kept moving, my body hurt less. I took up running and never stopped. I currently try to run three or four half marathons a year because I can and it feels great every time I finish.
