Hey! My name’s John, and I’m a student in Wisconsin. After almost three years of wrestling, I suffered a traumatic spinal injury (I shattered my C7 vertebrae) during a match and had to have an emergency fusion. Ever since, I’ve been thinking about how fortunate I am to have been lucky enough to recover so well. Even so, my doctors told me that I’ll never be able to do another contact sport again. They suggested that I take up golf.
I decided not to resign myself to my fate, and instead to train as well as I can and recover as quickly and as fully as I can. I write my tips, my thoughts, and my ideas about recovery, working out, and endurance running, swimming, biking and triathlon on my site, goanddoit.wordpress.com. If you want to talk, donate, or become a sponsor, just shoot me an email at email@example.com! I can’t wait to hear from you.
