Greatest moment in athletic career

"A come from behind victory against our #1 rivals: Team USA. We ended up winning by 1 point to secure our spot in the gold medal game at the London 2012 Paralympics."

Favorite movement routine

"High intensity intervals on my new rowing erg. Especially considering that it's one of the few workout options available to me these days."

Big Idea that inspires you the most

"I love the idea to "compare yourself to who you were yesterday" or being better than your yesterday, rather than comparing yourself to others around you."
