Paralyzed Woman Finishes London Marathon – Inspiring Story! [VIDEO]

Today, I got to work and I just knew it was going to be a “not so great day!” I just had to deal with one problem after another! It quickly put me in a mood. I had so much to do, and so little time to do it! I know a lot of you know how that feels. Our lives have gotten busier with less time to get anything done.Right when I was having a pretty good pity party, I come across this article that just brought me back to what is really important in this life.

Claire Lomas a brave woman with a lot of heart, just finished the London Marathon — 16 days after it started. The 32-year-old athlete, who’s been paralyzed from the chest down since 2007, completed the race wearing a $70,000 ReWalk bionic suit, which helped her to walk two miles a day.

Can you image the courage and tenacity it took to do what this woman just did? And I’m complaining about my little problems! I hang my head in shame.

(This part did upset me me a bit) – according to The London Marathon organizers wouldn’t give Claire¬† Lomas a medal because she didn’t finish the race the same day the race was held. Really? But Richard Branson, the head of Virgin, which by the way sponsored the race, awarded Claire the into his¬† Virgin Trophy for 2012. Yea!

“We treasure amazing acts of bravery,” Branson said. Hear, hear!

I would love to meet Claire Lomas. It would be an honor! Whenever you get wrapped up in the “little things” – step back and count your blessings!
