Svaha Spirit Series ~ Inspiring Photo – Inspiring Woman

Rather than a video, I thought I would simply share this amazing and inspiring photo of Athlete (and so much more) Aimee Mullins.  Some pictures are worth a thousand words and this one also inspires me to get up and get moving.  If she can do it, then I really have no excuse not to.

“Born without fibulae in both legs, Aimee’s medical prognosis was discouraging; she was told she would never walk, and would likely spend the rest of her life using a wheelchair. In an attempt for an outside chance at independent mobility, doctors amputated both her legs below the knee on her first birthday. The decision paid off. By age two, she had learned to walk on prosthetic legs, and spent her childhood doing the usual athletic activities of her peers: swimming, biking, softball, soccer, and skiing, always alongside “able-body” kids.”

Happy Sunday everyone!
