Lots of thanks to Hugo Mobility, Amanda. Mike and the gang and the the folks at Lachine/Bonneville Half Marathon for helping me achieve a milestone in my life.
From three months in a hospital bed to learning to walk (with a walker) and learning to speed walk (with a walker) and competing and completing my first official half marathon.
My walker is not a gimmick. I need it. Post leukemia and strokes.
I can still compete in a real sport with my walker
I walk fast because I learned to “Speed Walk”.
Just like my bike racing days, prior to the strokes, I can get excited about competing and winning and losing. An almost 64 year old kid who never grew up.
