The Princess and The Prosthetic

Runner Girl

March 8, 2020 in Family, Warrior Princess - 2 Comments

We’ve called out shot and are happy to announce that we are doing our first 5K in December!

We signed up for the Hollis Company’s Rise Run in December!

We really wanted to pick a race that would be special to us and was SO excited when they announced their first run.  Their first run and our first run?

Sold.

They have already reached out and reassured us that it will be accessible for Callie and told us that the entire team can’t wait to cheer our girl on!

I know out training plan will look different than others.

I know people are wondering why we picked one so far out.

We have to make sure that Callie’s endurance can handle it.  Three miles post open heart surgery AND double knee surgeries?  We need to be safe and that means building up slowly.  We will need to work on her gait, flexibility, and strength.

We have to make sure that my diabetes behaves itself.  I have to learn how to maintain a pace that’s feasible for me–not the fastest.  I need to learn just how hard and much I can push it before my blood sugars start to drop.  I need to learn what I can eat before hand to keep my levels stable during the whole three miles.  I also need to train carrying 80+ pounds…..because that’s a reality I need to plan for.  Callie might need a break or a breather but we will cross that finish line.  Either hand in hand or her on my back.  Either way……we finish.

I will make sure to share all of our training on social media so make sure you are following @theprincessandtheprosthetic on Instagram or on FB!

    Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
