Episode 14: Recovery Run

Candice Caesar is 44 years old with a son in college, a master’s degree, and a job as a speech pathologist. A dedicated runner, Candice spends her weeks training with several running clubs and her weekends traveling. She’s in the process of running 50 half marathons in 50 states by the time she’s 50.
But 17 years ago, a life like this was unthinkable. First of all, she hated running. But then, a near fatal car crash left her paralyzed and unable to speak. But even in the darkness of her new reality, Candice realized she had to keep moving. When a doctor told her she may never walk again, Candice replied: “I’ll walk a marathon.” That reply set in a motion a process that allowed Candice to rebuild herself, to become someone new. Through running, she discovers what matters most to her may not have been lost in the accident after all.
