High Point Climbing And Fitness

I love rock climbing with @catalyst_sports at @highpointclimbing once a month. It's such an amazing program. Rock climbing teaches me to keep reaching higher and to keep overcoming my limitations. It's always good to see the volunteers and the participants of @catalyst_sports and my friends from @chatt.tr. 💪🏾

It’s spinal cord injury awareness month and I just thought I’d remind y’all, because this life ain’t an easy one. Just the upkeep on your body alone is like having a part time job! Anyways if it seems like I’m complaining this month more than usual just know it’s because I’m spreading awareness, so we can find a cure. No more meds, surgeries, illnesses, bed sores, pain, depression, and anxiety just to name a few. What I’m saying is regardless how easy I make this life look it can be dauntingly hard. ♿️💚

Lima, Peru

The Paralympic dream of a wheelchair tennis player from Anmore is getting more real.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Thomas Venos, 20, recently competed at his first major multi-sport event, the Parapan American Games in Lima, Peru. He reached the second round in the men’s singles competition but he and his doubles partner, Jonathan Tremblay, were eliminated after the first round of their event.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But more important than the results, Venos said, was he learned about what it takes to reach the top level of international competition.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The biggest lesson came from his doubles match, in which he and Tremblay faced a team from Argentina led by the top-ranked men’s singles player in the world, Gustavo Fernandez.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Venos, who’s currently ranked 73rd in singles, said the Argentinian played at “another level,” adding, “He’s super fast and hits at a consistent pace.”⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The Canadian duo's elimination will mean more work in the gym and more time on the court now that he’s back in Tuscaloosa, Ala., where Venos is studying elementary education at the University of Alabama and plays for the school’s six-member wheelchair tennis team.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Amidst his studies, Venos said he spends an hour in the gym three days a week and another two hours on the court every afternoon. He works on his power and consistency, aiming to achieve a more natural union with athletic skills the former dirt biker and soccer player has been developing since he suffered a spinal cord injury in a motorbiking accident at his family’s cabin in the Cariboo that left him paralyzed from the hips down.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Venos said maneuvering a wheelchair and swinging a tennis racket don’t come naturally, so his newfound passion for the sport has been a constant learning curve since he first tried it out while rehabbing at GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre in Vancouver.⁠⠀

From RPS Conquest of the Gods, we have @garrisonredd celebrating after the Meet. At 122lbs he benched 290lbs.
He took home the Best Bench trophy from @benchinbenny
And yes, he did laugh when I joked with him that the guy who won the belt, is the only guy that never needs a belt.
He's also a runway model, and a motivational speaker. This guy never stops.

As well, check @gaglionestrength because Garrison got to write his name on the Records Board.

This is Footloose Adaptive Sailing. They provide a safe space for people with disabilities to grow, learn, and progress all through the platform of sailing and spending time on the water. For over 30 years they have been serving the greater Seattle area with an entirely volunteer run nonprofit. It’s hard for me to imagine a greater indicator of commitment and good intentions than that. If you have any interest in the work they do or supporting their efforts check out the link in my bio.

I had the privilege of working with them this year to help upgrade part of their fleet to a newer Capri 22 from the local Catalina dealer, @windworks_sailing. A special thanks to @rotaryinternational for a generous donation that made it all possible!

If you know of any nonprofit that needs volunteer help fixing their boats, buying a new one, or the services of a 100 ton near coastal skipper, send me a message and don’t forget to check out Footloose!

Первая моя работа пастелью ,за долгое время.
Когда я была маленькая ,я часто "ходила" в гости к бабушке. Как сейчас помню ,серый скользкий рюкзачок,с синими пуговками. Брала с собой ручки,карандаш,тетрадку и к бабуле. С Бабой мы часто играли в шашки и дурака) Наверное,не проходило и дня(когда была у нее),что бы мы не играли во что-нибудь.
Когда бабушка уходила на огород,то возвращалась с охапкой смородины ,малины ,мяты, паречки и делала СААМЫЙ вкусный чай,что я когда-либо пробовала. Липтон и тд стоят в сторонке.
И ковры с оленями!Они были у ваших бабушек? А вы ковыряли их перед сном или утром,когда лежали ещё в кровати ?
Даа,олени-это круто) Помню,был синий ,вроде олени на озере. Красивый,как картина прям.
Сериалы по вечерам.
Мммм,кошка Катя ,хех. Хорошая была кошка.
Правда было и то,что пугало. Дыра в стене (наверно что-то связанное с печкой) я так боялась,что оттуда вылезет паук:D брррр...
Но с бабушкой было уютно, спокойно:) ну,это же бабушка,с ней так и должно было быть:)хах
Лето. Солнце. Вкусный чай. Сад. Сладкие яблоки. Кучу клубники и малины. Катя, Тузик. Запорожец:) Вот и картина родилась..
А как вы проводили лето у бабушки? Чем занимали себя?

Когда я была маленькая ,я часто "ходила" в гости к бабушке. Как сейчас помню ,серый скользкий рюкзачок,с синими пуговками. Брала с собой ручки,карандаш,тетрадку и к бабуле. С Бабой мы часто играли в шашки и дурака) Наверное,не проходило и дня(когда была у нее),что бы мы не играли во что-нибудь.
Когда бабушка уходила на огород,то возвращалась с охапкой смородины ,малины ,мяты, паречки и делала СААМЫЙ вкусный чай,что я когда-либо пробовала. Липтон и тд стоят в сторонке.
И ковры с оленями!Они были у ваших бабушек? А вы ковыряли их перед сном или утром,когда лежали ещё в кровати ?
Даа,олени-это круто) Помню,был синий ,вроде олени на озере. Красивый,как картина прям. 
Сериалы по вечерам.
Мммм,кошка Катя ,хех. Хорошая была кошка. 
Правда было и то,что пугало. Дыра в стене (наверно что-то связанное с печкой) я так боялась,что оттуда вылезет паук:D брррр...
Но с бабушкой было уютно, спокойно:) ну,это же бабушка,с ней так и должно было быть:)хах
Лето. Солнце. Вкусный чай. Сад. Сладкие яблоки. Кучу клубники и малины. Катя, Тузик. Запорожец:) Вот и картина родилась..
А как вы проводили лето у бабушки? Чем занимали себя?

Работаю ради этих улыбок. На Камчатку я приехал не просто так, а для того, чтобы провести курс по адаптивным роликам от @dreamski_ru для местных инструкторов. Зимняя программа "Лыжи Мечты" тут уже работала, а теперь местные ребята с особенностями развития смогут заниматься адаптивным спортом круглый год

I ❤️ our Weehoo bike attachment so much. It gives Ella and I so much more freedom to bike around and explore. She loves the wind in her hair, seeing Nature all around her on her own special bike. Ella is 5 but it will be awhile until she’s ready to ride solo due to her Rett Syndrome. And with our Weehoo I don’t think it bothers her as she loves it so much. It was a beautiful day here today, with the colours on display and the leaves starting to fall. We got lots of forest time. #canmore #canmorekananaskis #weehoo #rettsyndrome #communitycruiser #bikecanmore #adaptivesports

#tb to the first time I stood up again four months after my accident (with a little help from my lovely physios 😅). Crazy how time is running, it‘s been three years to this day a mountainbike accident left me a paraplegic. I‘m grateful for my family, friends and medical professionals. Without everyones support, I wouldn‘t be where I am today. 🙏🏼

Adaptations, adaptations! •
I never squated with a bar really ever in my life until this year. My college distance coach didn’t have the cross country girls lift. •

I tried lifting with a bar for the first time this year. And it hurt my neck so BADLY! The bar would rest on the bone on my neck & leave it in such pain. •

I saw @meganabsten using something similar to this piece of equipment to hold the bar. Let me tell you it’s a game changer! Excited to continue to work on my squats!

Landing with a prosthetic leg is about timing.
Remembering my good fortune! In 1994, there were no military above knee amputees conducting free fall. I was fortunate to have leaders that supported me.
This paved the way for other above knees, to include the Golden Knights.
The importance of the timing was that I never wanted to land on a totally extended and straight prosthesis. Due to the strength of the materials, all of the impact would be taken at the hip causing severe injury or even a fracture. Thus, the importance of a flexed knee.
That being said, like skiing, “The only thing you need is balls and gravity “ … oh, and an airplane! Complete freedom!

Alice:: How long is forever?
White Rabbit::Sometimes just one second
When this accident happened I was fully conscious.I still remember those truck tyres which crossed over my legs and after few second there was pool of blood n flesh instead of my legs.
It was a fraction of second and life changed.
Justfew second before that I was thinking where to stop for shopping.After few second I was shouting in pain and requesting to cut off my legs because of unbearable pain.
Even sometime it make me surprised as well.🤔
It is just matter of second and everything changed.
Just one day before that I was planning with my friend for running together at morning during weekend
Just a day after I was trying vaguely to move my toes in ICU.I heard doctor said to my brother that if I could move atleast one then may be my leg can saved.
So my greatest lesson has been that life can changed in a second .This is why it's important to always live your best possible life and to do what you can for others. .
