“Women are so freaking powerful but we have been convinced that we are capable of so little. I truly believe when you create a healthy body to live in it changes everything. It changes our attitude, perspective, determination, priorities, and empowerment. I want to inspire ALL women to overcome and push our bodies to find light and our confidence again.” - 🙋🏼♀️

Den følelsen når en fugl blir sluppet ut fra buret sitt, og får lov til å fly rundt i stua. Samme følelse får jeg hver gang jeg tar på protesen og løper. Jeg føler meg fri. Da er kun meg og farten det gjelder 💨
Fikk svar fra MR, og det viste seg at kneet er frisk og rask. Det betyr at jeg kan begynne å konkurrere igjen 😄🏃🏻♂️
Vil du komme å heie på meg i min neste konkurranse?? 🤗
What an incredible night! So much love and support, and I was absolutely bursting with pride for Jacob and his determination. The standing ovation for him was overwhelming. I may be slightly biased, but that was the best puck drop I have seen! Thank you Vancouver Canucks, BC Children’s Hospital, our new friend Michael Del Zotto, and especially to our loved ones who came out to share this incredible experience with us!!🏒🎗💜👊

O Augusto está iniciando o treinamento com o Triton HD, que além de melhorar sua marcha poderá praticar esportes recreativos e até curtir uma piscina. Além disso, aproveitou o encontro e pegou boas dicas com o Roger, que já atleta!
Já o Antônio, que está se preparando para a colocação da sua primeira prótese, saiu com uma vasta gama de informações.
Bonito de ver o entrosamento dessa galera! ;-)

To think that a year ago today I had my amputation, looking back on everything I’ve done in that time is absolutely mind blowing! It was one of the hardest and scariest things I’ve ever done, but it’s improved my life more than I could ever express
Managing to WALK for the first time in over 8 years, which is something that I was told I’d never be able to do again
Road tripping through Europe at the start of the year, an eventful weekend at Download, a month in America with awesome people, visiting some places in the UK that I haven’t managed to for years and now just booking a trip to Budapest
I’ve met some great people through the year as well, and if not for my surgery, some of them would never have even crossed paths with me
With even more exciting things to come in the future, I’ve achecived more in a year than I did for the entire 7 years before my surgery
A year later, I’m in the field of work I’ve wanted to be in for so long, I’m no longer mad about all the time that for so long I felt was “wasted” it’s only going to help me help others in the future
So to anyone that’s feeling “stuck” or like nothing will ever improve, I promise you it will! It might take a while, but IT WILL change
Stay strong people, and Keep Aiming! (Tagged a few of you awesome people I’ve met through the year, thank you for all your support guys, you’ve helped me more than you know!) Tags
As we keep moving closer towards @Tokyo2020 we also keep moving towards ultimate perfection! Today I took place in a climate chamber. Today in the temperature that’s the same as in the Netherlands and next week I will be cycling in the Tokyo-climate. After today’s test I know that this will be a challenging session😅. After these 2 sessions I know exactly what my body needs for hydration to compete in the heat of Tokyo!! #adaptiveathlete#adaptivefitness#iamadaptive#amputee#amputeelife#paralympics#striveforperfection

I can't wait to start reading this book! She is a Boston Marathon Bombing survivor who had her leg amputated. This is her story. I can't wait to read her story. It means a little more to me knowing one day our son will soon have his foot amputated. #rebekahgregory#takingmylifeback#amputee#book
Thanksgiving is only 2 days away. You may remember the picture of me last year with my Grammie and the rolling pin trophy she was awarded for winning the annual Thanksgiving pie-off competition at my uncle Jeff’s house. Grammie won even though she only had an hour to make her pie after her plane landed. Uncle Jeff was not pleased with the outcome. .
The competition is heating up for this year’s pie-off. My uncle Jeff takes the competition very seriously. I’ve heard that he made multiple practice pies and took them to work to get feedback from his colleagues on which pie he should enter in this year’s Thanksgiving day competition. There has also been a rumor that my yellow lab cousin Casper got one of the pies off the kitchen counter. I’m siding with Casper on this unless someone can provide video evidence that proves he’s guilty. .
For Christmas last year we gave my uncle Jeff a pie cook book. I hope he’s been referencing it as he prepares for this year’s competition. I admire his determination and Never Give Up attitude even though he never wins. .
Who do you think will win the pie-off this year? Will it be Uncle Jeff, Grammie, or one of the friends or neighbors? Or maybe there will be an unexpected entry that will surprise everyone and take home the prize?
All of this has me thinking about the doggy cake at my birthday party last year and that I need to host a doggy cake competition 🎂. Everyone would bring their favorite doggy cake, and we would taste each one and vote for the winner. Even though it would be difficult to pick only 1 winner, I’m confident we could do it. Oh, and there would be a hedgehog trophy 🦔🏆 for the winner. Who’s in? 🐶💕
