why I started

About two years ago I watched my neighbor struggle to get in his car so he could go to the grocery. He is paraplegic. I had picked up the mail and was back in my 3rd floor apt before he finished pulling himself and his wheelchair into the car. I imagined that it would take him about 2 minutes to drive to the Safeway only a couple blocks away where he would have to spend another 10 minutes just getting out of the car. I was in the gym the next day… and I will be in the gym again today.
