Dr. Gross and Lee,
I want to thank you and your staff on the wonderful results I have had since the Hemi-replacement on my left knee and the total replacement on my right. Having been a runner, a two-time Boston Marathon qualifier, and Ultra-Marathoner I was very concerned that my running days were over. You actually brought a new meaning of running to me. No longer being able to run fast, I turned to pushing kids with disabilities.
How rewarding, no marathon in the world could give me the satisfaction that I have while pushing these kids. I am overwhelmed with excitement from looking at their faces every time I cross the finish line.
I feel like they can experience the wind pushing against their face, and the runners high by just being involved. Runners greet them and make them feel like just like another runner. The smile on their faces is priceless. I have hopes of pushing one child for a Marathon 26.2 miles in the fall of 2010.
Thank you again and special thanks to Nancy who I keep up on my running adventures. How can you hurt when pushing my new friends. They look so forward to it. I'm sure they would love to feel the pain. "Never Limit Where Running Can Take You."
