Check out this AMAZING person as she wheels herself UP the hill! We are honored to have you on the trail! Keep it up, you are an inspiration. 💪👍🙌🏋️‍♀️🥇 #yougotthis #LAMountains #santamonicamountains #whatsyourexcuse #findyourpark #seeyouonthetrail Thank you @press260 for allowing us to share your journey. ・・・ “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” - Dad Made it out of the gym today for a challenging push up Fryman Canyon with @dtoxthelarebel @carolynmmartin & @griz86 It was a little over 70 F, the clouds lifted and you could see the city for miles. When I’m wheeling around in the canyons I love the challenge because there’s no other choice but to work hard, not give up and find a way to laugh when the pot holes and cracks force me to take a different path, and it makes my backrest fall off. It was the perfect way to end week two of my training. If only Dustin had let me bomb the hill on the way down...... #CanDo #dudewheresmybackrest #Strongisthenewbeautiful #nevergiveup #cardio #LALife #SpinaBifida #wheelchairlife #frymancanyon #livesoreadaptive #iamadaptive
