With the 10th anniversary of my accident coming up( end of June), I’ve decided it’s time for a new name.
I have occasionaly thought about it then put it on the back burner (actually, the freezer) for another year or two.
Riding the handcycle took the place of running and I still thought of myself as a runner in my core, I was just having to do something different.
I started coaching high school cross-country and track about 18 months after the accident and that really maintained my connection to running.
I just felt that it’s time my name here should really reflect the direction my life has taken.
And no, I never considered Spam Fingerer.
