Below are some of the wonderful photos from the U.S. Paralympics Track & Field National Championships that took place last month at Hamline University in Minnesota. Two weeks ago we found out that no visually impaired mid or long distance runners were selected for the U.S. team to the Para Pan Am Games, just sprinters. I am so proud of Matt for giving it his all and winning a gold and silver medal in his two events. We always knew making the U.S. team this year would be a challenge. Matt is going to keep focusing on getting his times down so he is more competitive next year. He hasn't given up on his quest to make the U.S. team for Rio. Keep cheering him on -- your support and encouragement have been overwhelming. We have lots of running in the months ahead! Enjoy the photos.
My husband Matt is a lot of things. He is a wonderful husband to me and father to our three (adorable!) little children. He is an avid runner. He’s a financial analyst. He’s also legally blind. This blog is my attempt to follow him on his journey to the 2016 Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro. We have no idea what this journey will look like, or exactly how we’ll get there, but we are determined to try.
