Imagine three wheelchair racers setting and completing a truly audacious goal: Finishing 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 weeks. Travel with me and my fellow racers to the first 14 marathons in a journey that’s as life-changing as it is inspiring. While my story is unique and born from tragedy – suddenly paraplegic at 21 after a car accident – the insights and attitude are instructive to us all, regardless of our abilities or disabilities.

We find solutions and positivity in every challenge, and teaches readers to first do three things when adversity strikes: 1) Overcome your fears. 2) Take control of the situation. 3) Then take an unbelievable ride, and experience a journey you never imagined.

What to one person might be a handicap is to me an avenue to new possibilities. In this debut book, I recount the planning and excitement of the bold mission to complete 50 marathons in 50 states across 50 weeks. We share the grueling moments, the surprising lessons, the exhilaration of finish line after finish line, and the amazing people he met along the way.

50 Abilities, Unlimited Possibilities ― Wheeling Through 50 States: From Jackson to the Boston Marathon Bombing is a story you’ll never forget. It dares you to believe that we are full of abilities, not disabilities, and that the world presents us with possibilities, not limitations. With the right attitudes and the right goals, anything is possible ― especially when surrounded by the right people (like my family, who treated him immediately after his accident like he was “the same person just with better parking privileges”).

With a foreword by the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, the nation’s foremost advocate dedicated to finding treatments and cures for paralysis caused by spinal cord injury (SCI) and other neurological disorders.
