**IMPORTANT DETAILS REGARDING COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS**
I found sportable and road racing a year post injury. My TR from VCU made a pact with me if I tried out sportable she’d do the 10K right by my side. Getting in that sports chair and feeling the speed and wind on my face for the first time was the most fun I’d had since being in the wheelchair and I was addicted.
