She spoke about how much running has meant to her since she was in middle school and all of the lessons she has learned from running, mostly without realizing it at the time.
To make a long story short, Alison was hit by a car while cycling in 2010. Her husband was the emergency physician on the helicopter that transported her to University hospital after her accident.
And I was upset when I broke my foot a couple of years ago. I've found myself thinking of her story on my runs lately. How would I have handled such a traumatic accident? If she can comeback from physical injury, I can comeback too.
Alison's story might just help me get through my next 26.2. Which is WAY closer than I want to admit.
