This is an awesome post. Many thanks Rocky. He appears to be a great motivational speaker. You can really see in his eyes that he is truly happy. These types of videos and people really have helped me over the past year or two while dealing with a declining economy and the stresses of providing for my family. Many of you may not encounter people like the gentleman in the video....I do, and the simple sighting is motivational.
We have a wonderful organization based in Park City, UT called the National Ability Center. They help to provide people with disabilities the opportunities, equipment and instruction to be able to do some incredible things, like skiing, cycling, etc... Right next to the NAC is the HQ for the US Ski & Snowboard Teams....which also serves as the home training center for many of our Paralympians, like Chris Waddell. Chris is insane....he climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in a 4-wheeled offroad wheelchair this past year. Not only that....but I guarantee he can ski faster than any of you.
So.....next time you think you have it bad. Think of the guys and gals that have to try so much harder to accomplish what many of us take for granted.
Here's a picture of Chris if you don't believe he skis fast
