wheelchair racing

Sometime ago now, I dabbled in competitive wheelchair racing.

For me it was more a recreational activity than anything else.  I am not one that has a need for speed! I did enjoy it but I didn’t keep with it for very long.  although I met some prestigious names in the world of wheelchair athletics. If the chance to try it out is given I do highly recommend that you take it.

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled. You can follow her on Twitter or Facebook

    Wow, that sounds really fun! I’ve never seen wheelchair racing, but I’ve seen wheelchair basketball. Some of those players would give the ones in the NBA a run for their money – talk about tough and FAST. Also, one of Monkey’s friends is paralyzed from the chest down and plays sled hockey (sort of a chair on blades).

    Next time I read a blog, I hope that it won’t disappoint me just as much as this one. I mean, Yes, it was my cohice to read through, however I really believed you would have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something you could possibly fix if you were not too busy seeking attention.
