Racing makes me happy. This was my first full year racing and I'm still in awe of accomplishing exactly what I set out to do. No other adaptive athlete has ever qualified into the pro round of the Spatan world championship. I did and finished the race. I also qualified into the pro round of the U.S. and OCR world championship. Next year I hope to finish all 3. Cheer me on as I do. #notallwoundsarevisible #karenporteradaptiveathlete #kidneyfailurestinks #shejustwantstorun #iamadaptive #iaact #roswellnutritionathlete

We all have flaws, right? Maybe you snore; maybe one foot is larger than the other; maybe you secretly collect your toenail clippings. You know, those little things about yourself that you hope no one else notices; the things you secretly despise; the things you try to hide. So often, we convince ourselves that our life would be markedly improved if we could just change that one thing. .

But, what if we embraced our flaws? What if instead of hiding these things, we share it proudly? What if instead of despising these things, we learn to love them? What if we allow ourselves to realize that these things - these flaws - are what make us who we are? .

So, here I am. I’m learning to love my flaws. Most of you know I’m pretty much an open book when it comes to my medical history, recovery, fitness, and nutrition. But, there are a few things I choose not to broadcast. For years, baggy clothes, the avoidance of shorts, and flat-out refusing to wear a bathing suit allowed me to hide #therightleg. At least that’s what I thought I was doing. In reality, I was allowing - if not forcing - myself to be embarrassed by something that has made me who I am today. .

It’s pretty common knowledge that I’ve been working on building leg muscles in an attempt to slow the deterioration of my ability to walk. Squats, calf raises, leg lifts, donkey kicks, and leg presses have developed definition in my left leg. Is there more work to do? Of course. But there has been progress. Now, #therightleg? It’s small, weak, undefined, and scarred. .

Am I working to improve #therightleg? Absolutely. Admittedly, according to some, I should be working harder. For example, the neanderthal at the gym - we’ll call him Mr. Douchecanoe - was kind enough to impart a little bro science a few weekends ago. He suggested I stop screwing around and go heavy on the right side so I’m not so disproportionate. He walked away with a confused look on his face when I told him I would be incredibly lopsided if I go too heavy on the right.

Hemp everything... #mhhempambassador

**Disclaimer: as some of you may have heard, I scored a couple of sponsorship opportunities from some pretty cool companies. Three of the four companies have asked me to bump up my level of fitness related posts, with particular emphasis on training as an adaptive athlete. If you’re not interested, I totally get and would encourage you keep on a scrollin’. But, if you are? Sit back, grab a drink - in my case, a Nuun blueberry pomegranate water (#shamelessplug) - and get comfy**
.
When I first started this journey, I equated fitness with loss....loss of weight, loss of jiggle, loss of appetite when kale was put in front of me. I mean, you get it, right? No more junk food. No more comfy couch time. No more saying “yes” to a second slice of pizza. .
It took a long time to learn that with that loss comes gains. Gains in strength, gains in muscle mass, and, sometimes, even gains on the scale. It is absolutely necessary to trust the process as a whole and not simply focus on one day. Ironically, the process is not a sprint, it’s a marathon.
.
Throughout this process, the hardest areas for me to work have been my legs and core. One leg is severely overworked daily, while the other often serves little purpose other than a place to hold my right shoe and, of course, the perfectly matched Swiftwick sock. Core work is especially difficult given that I’m missing an entire hip joint and have a fused pelvis (not to mention broken femur, but I digress). For most of this time, I have avoided this work unless I was begrudgingly forced to do it.
.
In early September, I realized my legs are giving out more and more, causing me to stumble like a drunken sailor on leave or - even better - causing me to completely wipeout like Bambi on ice. As much as I love upper body work and knowing that I can haul myself around on crutches, I knew I had to start focusing more on core and leg work. So, I did.
.
Remember those gains I was talking about? It’s almost three months later, and they’re starting to become noticeable. Enter squats, exit baggy pants.
In fitness, like life, not every day will be a good day, but there will be good in every day.

#fbf We’re in our first week of cold weather here in the #adironacks and I’m already missing the warm summer days. 120lb #tiredrags are definitely more fun than frosty windshields, icy parking lots, and windchills. #adaptiveathlete #ididntchoosethecrutchlife #thecrutchlifechoseme #cancersurvivor #girlswholift #juststrong #boston2018hereicome #strongereveryday #competeeveryday #hshive #livesoreadaptive #livesore #iaact #teamcaf #goachilles #nuunbassador #bondibandambassador #sidestix #defyconvention

This morning, I did something I have dreamed about doing since April of 1991; something I’ve worked for daily; something I never thought would be possible. A
.
I spent a countless number of days peering out of a hospital room window from the 18th floor of the Ellison Building at Massachusetts General Hospital. It helped pass the time; helped take my mind off the toxic chemicals being pumped into my veins; helped ease my constantlyy upset stomach. At first, I would idly watch the traffic as it inched along Storrow Drive at a snail’s pace. But soon, the vibrantly clad runners working their way along the twists and turns of the Charles River caught my attention. Their movement seemed so effortless. Ponytails bounced to the rhythm of their pace. Heads held high, shoulders squared, fists balled, they made their way quickly out of my sight.
.
That’s what I wanted to do. I wanted to run. I tried desperately to remember what the breeze felt like against my face. What it was like have my ponytail skim across my back as I pushed myself to go faster on the playground. What it was like to move effortlessly. Then, reality would hit – walking was difficult even with the aid of two crutches and a nurse; my once long, thick hair had fallen out weeks ago; and I would never run again.
.
In April of 1991, the entire city was abuzz with talk of the Boston Marathon. I decided right then and there – the first time I had ever heard those two words uttered – that I was going to do the Boston Marathon if I grow up.
.
Twenty-six years later, I’m one step closer to making that dream a reality. I earned a qualifying time at the 2017 Vermont City Marathon. That was step one. Step two was waiting until today to apply for the registration lottery in which up to six – yes, I said six – civilians will be selected to participate in the handcycle division of the 2018 Boston Marathon. .
Are the odds in my favor? No. But that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t try; shouldn’t hope; shouldn’t train as if I’ll be making a left on to Boylston Street on April 16, 2018. Whether you love it or hate, the Boston Marathon is my unicorn.

I earned first place in the TBI class for the Working Wounded Games . I am beyond impressed with myself. I came to have fun and to push myself and that I did. My name got called and I was looking around for some other Courtney. Nope! Thank you so much to @crossroadsaaa for this event, it was my first time coming and participating and I now to come back next year.

I need to thank @infinitefitnessandhealth and @crossfit_shakedown_street for getting me here. I started from the bottom (literally) and now I'm here.

Veni vidi vici.

Completely blessed to be a part of such a wonderful team this year. My motivation is high, even when my energy is low. James and I were race partners yesterday, and I can't thank him enough for his support. I finished 6 out of 12, which makes me happy. My first race against the men, and I finished middle of the pack, and even lapped a couple of guys. Not bad for not even having a bike to practice on since the last games. New goals for next year! #blessed #invictusgames2017 #teamusa #cycling #recumbent #iamadaptive #iaact #adaptiveathlete #transathlete #ftm #transgender

Big thank you to #Hofstra University for allowing us to use their facilities to get some much needed practice time in. There's nothing like a nice swim in a beautifully maintained pool first thing in the morning. #iamadaptive #iaact #adaptiveathlete #invictusgames2017 #teamusa #besties #fuckcancer #ms #amputeelife #tbi #swimming #transman #ftm #transathlete #transswimmer

I was honored to meet more sports legends than I can count tonight. Here are a couple pictures from my favorites, Broadway Joe Namath, Bill Goldberg, and last but certainly not least one of the most humble men I've ever met, Chris Berman. I got my book autographed to add to my growing library which made the nerd inside me ecstatic. #invictusgames2017 #joenamath #goldberg #chrisberman #teamusa #adaptiveathlete #iamadaptive #iaact #transathlete #ftm

First place female at the NH Highland Games adaptive class.
