I am a Paralympian.
My legs are paralyzed from the result of polio when I was young.
My Nordic ancestors from Denmark believed that a warrior's injury is the source of great strength.
But only if I choose that attitude, they would say.
In 2013 I rode my hand cycle 900 miles in the Rotary International End Polio Now Campaign.
Each morning before my next day's ride I would type an average of 500 words, and with photos share my progress with friends on my blog site. This book is that journey.

"Every Journey of the body requires a transformation of the beliefs that will get that journey done. This is the story about my 900 mile journey on a hand cycle that caused me to throw out every thought that did not empower me. As a result I learned to find happiness at each wide open plain, around every turn and in each face I met. This is the story about how to become really happy."
In 1985 Rotary International decided to help eradicate polio. In that year alone, over 300,000 people caught polio in 138 countries. Most of them were under the age of five. Last year less than 500 people world wide caught polio. But we aren't done. You can help. Touch the link below to learn more.
