Refusing To Give Up!

Hello I am Stephanie M. Freeman and I have created this to let everyone walk with me through my journey I am taking to accomplish my dream of qualifying for the Boston Marathon.
Running is my passion.  When I was 14 years old I experienced a life changing event that nearly took my life.  I suffered a brain & lung injury from a car accident that left me in a coma for two months.  I pulled through this and woke to find i was bound to a  wheelchair and told I would be a handicapped child and never walk again.  For 2 months of my life I prayed for my miracle, and with strength and determination I proved all my doctors & nurses wrong… I walked out of that hospital on October 8, 1993.
When I run now I let this memory drive me harder than ever to be the best person and runner I can be! So therefore I know this goal of mine WILL happen for me and I will make most sure of it!
