CP + quadripelia + determination = bigger than mountains and Kona

So this is pretty fantastic: Chaeli Mycroft becomes the first quadriplegic person to summit Mount Kilimanjaro.

Just amazing.

It made me think of Bonner Paddock, the first man with CP to summit Mount Kilimanjaro. He then went on to become the first person with CP to complete the most difficult triathlon in the world – the Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona, HI.

If you’re interested in his story, check out his book One More Step, which chronicles his journey to Kilimanjaro and to Kona.

In other news, it’s been a pretty long time since I last wrote a post, and there has been a huge amount of progress in my recovery story to catch up on. I’ll remedy that either later this week or sometime next week.
