Katja Gets Stronger
Here is a very nice blog post about our own Katja Stokley from fellow Barbell Strategy sports performance member, Rojas Athletics sprinter and photographer extraordinaire Dave Albo.
"From my perspective it is important to recognize that it is not appropriate to call someone inspirational for just living an everyday life. Woo-hoo, I got out of bed, got dressed, and managed to go to work! That is not inspirational. But what is super important to me is to be visible doing things that most people (disabled or able bodied) don't expect disabled people to do. The biggest hurdle to becoming active (and "active" might mean getting dressed, or it might mean going to the Paralympics) is getting over one's own belief that it cannot be done. After that, it's really just logistics." -Katja
