Push harder, ride further… My motto these days, if one were to ask, would be, push harder, ride further. Every time I ride, I try to push myself to go further, faster, harder. It’s a personal quest to set and achieve new heights. The question I get asked all the time as an amputee… Why
I’m ready to do my ONE/80, are you? It’s amazing to look back over this past year to when I made my decision to change my life in a complete ONE/80 transformation. The moment I realized that enough was enough came from a photo we took while in Tennessee. I have seen hundreds of pics of
My personal weight loss story and AdvoCare Journey Many of you know me, some of you don’t but this blog post should catch both audiences up just a little! I have heard it said, and this could be said of any goal, that “you can’t do it for anyone else, and succeed.” You must want it
Okay, I must admit that heights are not really my thing. So, if you were to ask me to climb a tower and jump off, I would say “you first!” And, I am true to my words (see my first photo) I asked Denise to go first, you know, so I could get a good picture! In the end, I really loved Zip Lining!
Thank you! Today’s blog post is a special thank you to all of those that make things happen behind the scenes! Often times, these poor souls are forgotten as we go about enjoying ourselves. On an unfortunate day, you can hear someone grumbling at them, “I don’t want to!” or “do I have too?” and
Today I’m going to be talking about my own personal experiences at some fantastic music festivals as a disabled person here in the UK. Disabled access information is a topic that you can’t find much information about when searching online, and the only way to truly know the struggles and the precautions you have to take as a disabled person is if you have spoken to someone that has already attended and can tell you all about what you’ll more than likely need to be cautious about.
When I was attending my first music festival I did try to do a search online and couldn’t find anything to help and advise me. I ended up having to just email the festival and hope for a reply – which
Amy Purdy, keynote speaker, amputee, snowboarder! I had the distinct pleasure of hearing Amy Purdy at the Professional Photographers of America Convention, in Atlanta, Georgia, where she was the keynote speaker. I still had my leg at that time, but after a lifetime of pain and dealing with my disability, her story touched my heart. Now, as
I started my blog as a hobby! It would be, a way to share my photos with the world and to share experiences of my travels. But, it has become so much more than that to me. In January of 2016, I had my left leg amputated below the knee. I have to say; having
Denise loves the beach But, since my amputation and before DryPro, our waterfront activities were limited to drives along the coast. Before my amputation, it was difficult for me to walk in the sand. Not to mention that I always had an open wound. So, I avoided the water, to avoid the chance of getting an
Andy, here I thought it was part Scottish or Irish! Go figure!
This saying is not a new one, you might have heard your grandmother or even mother say it. You probably just shook your head, chuckled and walked away, never giving another thought! Believe it or not, there is true wisdom in those words.
