Seven Days to My Seventh Race With Liam
With that, my six special memories of Mr. Liam. Have to start with my first triathlon a year after my near-fatal crash in 2014. I put off my selection for my IRun4 buddy as I was still healing and riding a lot of pain pills. I returned to the scene of the crash to podium one year later and sent my first of many medals to Liam in San Diego.
The race recap HERE. I wrote the story for someone (like Liam) that is blind with extra descriptions on the senses I encountered.
"My race tires make more noise when I stop peddling. They are expensive, but sound like a cheap plastic toy gun when they spin without peddling. This year there would be no crash and my heart rate slowed down once I stopped my bike shortly after that fateful corner."
On Sunday, we race together!
Liam was born with Hydrocephalus and Cerebral Palsy. He is blind, has never walked, and due to severe scoliosis, he has a metal rod in his back and the use of only one lung. Liam and his whole family are "solid gold."
