Now that my oldest is attending the official school system our mindset about summer is taking a serious re-adjustment.
We can't no longer plan for get aways or races in late summer or fall that are not exclusively on the weekend.
And then WE are going to start fall soccer and I say "WE" because now it is going to be a family project... I will be the coach of a group of 1st graders looking to learn about soccer. This proposition either will turn out to be an amazing experience or it could turn out to be a complete disaster... Stay tuned as I will do my best to keep you posted.
Speaking of interesting experiences getting to know the clotting story of this month's CLOT BUSTER Athlete of the Month really blew my mind. Not only because of where it went down but how the road to recovery has shaped this young individual on to a youngish adult who is training for the NYC Marathon and enjoy life each and every day.
Please let allow me to introduce to you AMARIS WHITE your AUGUST CLOT BUSTER ATHLETE OF THE MONTH!
Read on to find out about her extraordinary story...
I don't know if there's space for this, but I am trying to share my DVT/PE story by getting on the cover of Runner's World Magazine. People are allowed to vote daily and any support would be great (Runner's World picks 5 men/women to interview to be on the cover of the magazine. Social medial helps, but you don't need to be top 5 to get an interview. I just want to be on their radar so they will hopefully share my story.)
Also I'm trying to keep up a blog where I talk about DVT and my learning experiences. My goal is to post weekly with an update on my marathon training. I learned a lot about DVT and recovery through debacle and hope that this site can be a small resource to someone!
Sadly blood clots can happen to anyone and at anytime. But how we overcome the challenge that clots throw in front of us can be the galvanizing force that can shape the rest of our lives.
Certainly Amaris is an example of that process. THANK YOU so much for sharing your story with all of us.
Please be sure to vote for her to see if we can one of us CLOT BUSTER Stop The Clot Athletes on the cover of Runner's World. Go ahead vote for Amaris and VOTE OFTEN!!!
Thank you for reading,
The Clot Buster
