Half a marathon/wheelchair/stress fracture?

Oh, my Half a marathon! you are certainly in a different category than I. I’m lucky to walk half way down the block and back.

A Wheelchair for Disneyland or Disneyworld or Busch Gardens, oh, heck any big amusement park is out of the question (for me).

I always get a battery powered scooter now. Believe me, nobody wants to push you up hill, down hill and all around all day and, I’m certain, if you had the arm strength to push yourself, or to walk it, you certainly would not miss one IVIG treatment while you are gone.

I know the feeling about ‘handicapped’. I also said, “I’m not handicapped, I don’t need no stinking handicapped sticker.” Well, guess what? Maybe you are and maybe you do. So use them.

Just the opinion of a guy who’s been there, done that, and couldn’t do more than 10 reps of almost anything without severe muscle fatigue and cramping.

Good luck.
