Wow. Miracles. Dystonia, Wheelchairs. Glitter
I run because I can. I woke up this morning thinking I may not be able to do the 15 miles I committed to do. But I got over that quickly and ran/walked 16.2 miles!!!! I knew I would be able to run today because of all the children I met yesterday with Dystonia. Kids that you would never think have Dystonia to those whose bodies were so tightly wound up I am not sure how they ever get the chance to feel relaxed. Yesterday, I met the cutest little girl (6-8 years old) whose Dystonia was so bad she was in a wheelchair, has limited use of her arms and could barely speak, but she had swag! Swag you say? Absolutely, check out her shoes below!
Her shoes were silver lacings, rhinestones on the front of her shoe and glitter on the petals of the flower. Her smile was so infectious. Her mom was the sweetest person ever, helping decipher what her daughter was trying to tell me. After I told her what I was doing, she said “hug”? I fell in love…I knew this morning when I laced up for today’s run, it wasn’t about me, it was for every child or adult that has dystonia to help find a cure!
