Welcome to My Story

half marathin finish
One week and two days before the stroke, I finished the SF Nike Half marathon (13.1 miles)

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. On October 28, 2014 our lives was changed. That was the night that I had suffered a hemorrhagic stroke.
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.

I am typing one-handed & sometimes I do not catch writing errors. Please do not hesitate to let me know if I need to make corrections. 

Much Love,
