I have been helping my friend Dave write his blog about training for the Boston Half Marathon. What makes this is so incredible is that he only has 20cm of Small bowel. He works full time, is an avid advocate for others in his situation, and oh yeah.... he is going to run 13.1 miles this June.
I am perfectly healthy and that task seems daunting. But it has been really fun helping Dave and to see his progress. But I have to say the best part is seeing his determination and refusal to just sit back and be an observer.
Whenever I get sad about the things Ellie might not be able to do when she is older, I just check out Dave's blog and I feel much better.
Thanks Dave for the inspiration.
