The paralysed runner.





Saw the familiar man having his daily evening run. This time, my timing is just right to see him up close.


In his early 50s, a strong body with thinning and graying hairs, jogging at a consistent pace I will never be able to achieve. Oh yes, his right hand and leg were visibly less flexible and agile, showing signs of a possibly recovery from a stroke.


There are many examples out there of people fighting for their life and living a positive lifestyle. The question is do we have the courage and determination to be like them if it happened to us?


Goodnight everybody.
