Three years ago this November, I had a bicycle accident, fracturing my neck, while on the way to meet a few buddies for a ride/run. It could have been devastating. But after several hundred therapy sessions, the never ending encouragement of my friends and family and the support of the good people from the Reeve Foundation, I was on the path to a full recovery, running my first marathon a year to the day of the accident!

The 2008 ING New York City Marathon will be my third marathon with Team Reeve!
