  • "Sono felice"
- Mi han detto che sarei tornata a fare tutto, ho pensato che se avessi potuto camminare, correre e saltare, magari allora sarei riuscita ad essere felice nonostante tutto. La felicità non si impara, si insegue e di questa sfida ne ho fatto una ragione di vita, perché è solo se sei felice che non hai limiti.

  • Hey friends! I just completed my first half marathon since Josie ✅👶. It was a New Years resolution which took me 11 months 😆, but I’m glad I kept that promise to myself (even though I am in a whole lotta pain right now!) What have you been promising yourself in 2019? You still have time to meet those goals! Let's do it together!! 😉💪

  • Trying to do more jumping UP⬆️ instead of OUT ↗️
It makes a big difference because you have more time in the air to rotate, and you are able to land closer to your takeoff spot* *Speculation

  • Authentic fellowship is not superficial, surface-level chit-chat. It’s genuine, heart-to-heart, sometimes gut-level sharing.

It happens when people get honest about who they are and what is happening in their lives. They share their hurts, reveal their feelings, confess their failures, disclose their doubts, admit their fears, acknowledge their weaknesses, and ask for help and prayer.

People wear masks, keep their guard up, and act as if everything is rosy in their lives. These attitudes are the death of real friendship.

It’s only when we become open about our lives that we experience authentic fellowship. The Bible says, “If we live in the light, as God is in the light, we can share fellowship with each other . . . If we say we have no sin, we are fooling ourselves” (1 John 1:7-8 NCV). The world thinks intimacy occurs in the dark, but God says it happens in the light. We tend to use darkness to hide our hurts, faults, fears, failures, and flaws. But when we bring these into the light, we’re able to admit who we really are.

Being authentic requires both courage and humility. It means facing our fear of exposure, rejection, or being hurt again.

An excerpt from “Awesome Relationships” by Rick Warren

Doing a little late night reading and thinking... how many true friendships do you think you have?

Forever Growing ~ Forever Improving ~ Forever Dependent on Christ

  • Aroo Aroo Aroo...
What a ripper team we had... Absolutely love everyone of them!! Up in Bright we did the Spartan Race which was the second time I’ve raced. The difference in terrain made this race 100% more difficult, river crossing, narrow trail track which the wheelchair struggled to get through and to make things more difficult within the first 30 min the axel of the front right wheel buckled so for another 5-6 km’s the boys had to mono me around the track. It’s amazing how these events really bring everyone together, the support from everyone in and around the race would cheer us on. I really want to get more adaptive athletes involved in these events so please reach out if you’re keen or you might know someone is keen. It’ll change what levels you can push yourself and that’ll give you the confidence to tackle anything in your day to day life. I also want to thank the team at @elitlestrainingsportsmed who funded the wheelchair I used for these races.

  • Training full time snowboarding for your dreams isn’t always easy. Since 2006, the first time I dislocated my knee I have always had knee problem. Doctors orders were to slow and and take it easy. Which fueled me for the past 13 years to push even harder. I have had so much work done on my knee since then. PT, surgeries, massage, treatment, you name it. But I always find a solution to it. 
The average knee is suppose to carry 3-5 ml of fluid to keep it protected, lubricated and function well. This is 30ml of fluid they pulled from my knee yesterday. And one week prior they pulled another 45-50 ml from my need. That’s about 80 ml in a week and a half. After yesterday they also injected cortisone into my knee to allow me to crush this season. After my surgery this past May my knee has never felt more stable and and strong. It’s just pain management at this point. Which I am perfectly fine with. I know how to do that. 
Honestly despite all that my knee had been through it has never felt better. Race in 1 week and it can come soon enough. 
I encourage everyone to dig deep, find that inner strength to push through. It may be rough but the long term will be worth it. What’s something y’all been trying to push through: physical, mental , job related ect... keep pushin and grind. Here’s to amazing Drs and people that have had my back when I need it the most. .

  • In response to a comment by celebrity personal trainer @harleypasternak in the @nytimes (see below)... let’s get a few things straight.
.
ACTUAL REASONS YOU SHOULD NOT ROCK CLIMB:
.
1. You plan to disrespect climbing ethics, access, other climbers, or climbing areas
2. You do not (yet) have the knowledge or tools necessary to climb without seriously endangering yourself or others
3. You genuinely have zero interest in rock climbing
.
~NOT~ REASONS YOU SHOULD NOT ROCK CLIMB:
1. Your body type
2. Your fitness level or “functionality”
3. The quantity or appearance of your limbs
4. Your skin color
5. Your gender identity or orientation
6. Exclusionary assholes (regardless of their intentions) trying to make you doubt your validity as a member of the climbing community based on ableism or any other bullshit imaginary reasoning
.
Mmkay are we clear now? ✊

“Keeping in mind the average American is significantly overweight, I would talk everyone I could out of rock climbing unless you are incredibly light, agile, fit and functional... there is a very small minority of this country that should be rock climbing.” ~celebrity personal trainer Harley Pasternak to the New York Times, Nov 14 2019
