Inspiration can come at you from many different directions. You never will know what will hit you that will get you inspired.
If you read any of the previous post from this blog you will find some inspiration from these blood clot survivors there is no question about it.
The month of October has in it a very VERY especial day for the community of blood clot survivors... OCTOBER 13th is WORLD THROMBOSIS DAY!!! For me this is a day in which we celebrate awareness, survivors, and remember all those we lost along the way. This year STOPTHECLOT.org is celebrating World Thrombosis day with a virtual run. Checkout all the details here >>> https://runsignup.com/Race/PA/Philadelphia/RunWalktoStoptheClot
You know that I will be running in my CLOT BUSTER @TeamStopTheClot polka-dots and I hope that you will consider joining us as well!
And speaking of running... October is also the month in which preparations intensify in order for blood clot survivors and friends/family of blood clot patients to get ready to participate as runners for the NYC Marathon in November. This is without a question one of the coolest things that we get to do and to me it is always a thrill to meet these runners who are about to have an unbelievable experience running this marathon. There is nothing like it.
So lets go ahead and meet on of our runners for this year's edition of Team STOP THE CLOT.
Please allow me introduce to you NATALIA... but instead of me rambling here go ahead and read on to learn more about this blood clot survivor who is going to dominate the NYC Marathon!!!
What is your sport/activity of choice? Why do you enjoy it?
I primarily run - I really enjoy the stress relief it provides and having my body be constantly challenged. I find that running really helps with my mental health and really jump starts my day. It is a sport that rewards consistency and to me that is very important.
