Updates, Training and Schedule

I wanted to first and foremost thank you all for the encouragement and support you have all shown me over the past 8 months. Without the support of all of you, my prosthetics office, Prosthetic Orthotic Solutions International, Challenged Athletes Foundation, Jelly Bean, The Columbiettes, Italian American Police Society, friends, and so many others, I would not have been able to continue this quest to better myself mentally and physically and prepare for US Paracanoe Team Trials. Training has been progress well with some major breakthroughs over the past few months. For three years I have been told that I just had to deal with pain and restriction of motion, which has hindered the potential of what I could do. I've lost 20lbs even on the steroids and will continue to work hard towards my goals.New racing paddle and better vest for movement, less restriction allowing me to get it done.

I would not have been able to purchase this equipment, complete training or have this opportunity to go for it. US Team Trials less than 90 days away.

Now most of that is gone, I have range and continue to work at strength and endurance in that area, which is one of my major goals. It will make all the difference in the long and short term for my life and help me to complete my objectives as an Para kayaker. As an para athlete living with Lupus I have made leaps and bounds thanks to the fitness coaching and trainers your donations have helped to provide. I head to Florida in three weeks to begin training down in Melbourne Florida.
