National Stroke Association 2010 Logo - 100 transparent

I am a runner. I am a yoga teacher. I am a stroke survivor. Yes, a stroke survivor. Even as I write this, the entire event is all still so surreal. I was healthy and had no risk factors, yet, on April 13, 2011, at the age of 34, I suffered a stroke in my cerebellum. I experienced headaches, dizziness, loss of balance, loss of vision, loss of pain and temperature sensation on the left side of my body. In a matter of moments, my life was changed. Days after my stroke, I remember the frustration and defeat I felt at not being able to balance as I tried to place one foot in front of the other while trying, unsuccessfully, to walk in a straight line. The weeks and months following my stroke were not any easier. My mantra? Acceptance. Patience. Perseverance.

Today, through physical therapy and the unwavering support of my family and friends, not only am I walking in a straight line, but I am also running in one. Ok, so it's not a perfectly straight line, but it will do!

In an effort to take back what the stroke took from me, I have decided to run my 9th marathon. I am so grateful and humbled to be running the 2012 New York City Marathon on behalf of the National Stroke Association.

We need to raise awareness and fund additional research to stomp out stroke. I ask that you please support my efforts by making a donation to the National Stroke Association.

I am reminded every day that life is a gift, and it can change instantly. Please take a few seconds to familiarize yourself with the warning signs of a stroke. Doing so could help you save a life; maybe even your own.

Evaluating presence of copied material from other sites. Facebook ads are much more cost-effective and incredibly great for small enterprises wanting to achieve a presence online without a big budget. For example, should you operate a dog care information website, Ad - Sense could select advertisements regarding dog food, canine training, and pet health to produce around the page.

, very few athletes have been shown the proper way to train, or perhaps the proper "mode" of education that yields maximum results. Also, whenever you purchase the Jump Manual, you receive usage of the Jumpers Forum, which is basically a conference place of other athletes just like you who're studying the program. Why will there be so much controversy concerning this product, and can it truly produce more gains on your muscles than other creatine supplements.

Peanut butter is set with healthy fats and protein. This can be a reasonable goal for anyone starting out a diet, this also article will show some suggestions that will make achieving that goal relatively easy. Detox diets can also prove to be rather costly too because with the variety of supplements that the dieter is anticipated to utilize along with their detox plan.
