Recent Double Knee Replacement Mother & Blind Friend Teach Son That Nothing Is Impossible.

On August 15th 2012, I had a double knee replacement and was told I would never run again by a professional. 2 weeks ago, as my 9 year-old child struggled after running multiple laps at soccer practice on this very field, I told him I wished I could run with him to help. He told me that it would be a "miracle" if I ran again. This video was made for my child to let him know that NO ONE should dictate whether or not something is impossible. YOU are in control of your own actions. I am also posting this because anyone who knows how vain I am, knows that I would NEVER want anyone to see me with this much weight on me, let alone the world. As I continue on my personal journey back to being a healthy, fit individual, I want my kid to know that no matter what shape or size you might be, anything is possible if you have the drive. HUGE thanks to my visually impaired friend, Alyson, who embraced this challenge with me. Now that we know we can do it, we will be running laps after we exercise together 3 times a week.
