Welcome to My Story

half marathon finish, Nike half marathon, San Francisco Niker

Thank you for wandering over to my blog. Welcome. I am a mother, a wife, and a runner.  I was in the best shape of my life. I felt strong, confident and beautiful. At 43 years old, I was comfortable in my skin.
My two teen-age boys were handling the teen-age thing fairly well and my husband and I nearing our 20th wedding anniversary, were becoming closer than ever. Our lives changed on October 28, 2014. That was the night that I had suffered a hemorrhagic stroke.                                                                                        I will share my successes and failures. I will hopefully give you information on strokes, traumatic brain injuries and recovery. I also would like to offer hope. Hope that there is life beyond survival. That despite a disability, we can still thrive.
The last two years has been one of trials, struggles and discovery. Please join me as I continue to work on my recovery, as I attempt to put pieces of my self together and as I try to reach my goals and find my way to my new normal.
I hope to bring awareness and education about stroke prevention, the recovery process and life as a survivor.

 

Much love ,
