Bermuda Marathon Weekend

Running in the Bermuda Marathon Weekend had been on Mary's Bucket List for years. She abandoned the idea when she could not get traction on her healing journey to heal the effects of paralytic polio and trauma.

After working with Ryan J. Means, DC, a chiropractor healer, Mary decided to take on the challenge of training for and running the 2016 Bermuda Half Marathon. She met Race Director Anthony Raynor at the 2015 Finish at the 50 Race Expo. She was enthralled remembering all the wonderful memories she had of Bermuda until the diagnosis of Post-Polio Syndrome. The last time she had been on the Island she was using a wheelchair to travel and was in a leg brace using a cane. She would have a triumphant return to the Island going the distance of a half marathon.

For the first time in Mary's ten year healing odyssey, she felt strong and healthy enough to train for and run her 2nd CONSECUTIVE Bermuda Half Marathon in January of 2017:
