Chasing 26.2 – Claire Lomas 2012 Virgin London Marathon Challenge
After learning of Claire Lomas and her journey to the 2012 Virgin London Marathon, I have no excuses as to why I should not complete a marathon or two. In my professional life, I’ve read about the devastation of spinal cord injuries and Claire’s story offers a ray of hope for people struggling with these injuries.
Claire Lomas suffered a devastating spinal injury horseback riding in 2007 leaving her with no sensation from her chest down. With a fantastic support group and modern technology via ReWalk from Argomedtech, Claire decided to walk the 2012 London Marathon to raise awareness and funding for spinal injuries.
