I Kevin was born with Cerebral Palsy and I wasn't diagnosed until I was 18 months old. It causes me to walk funny and limits my coordination/balance. I had a couple corrective surgeries to limit spasticity. One of them I had when I was only 4 years old.
Later on in life I realized that despite having limitations I could still exercise and lift weight. When I turned 29 I decided to run a marathon, which is 26.2 miles. I trained for 3 months, running 4 times a week and entered the equinox marathon in Fairbanks Alaska. It took me a little over 13hrs to finish it and damn it felt good.
A year after I was burned out working in a box store(Home Depot). I one day decided to go to the DMV to take the Commercial learner's driving permit. I started chatting with a random person who said that they were going to Denali to drive tour bus. I applied with that same company. They hired me on as a transportation Supervisor in Denali.
Denali was the most amazing place I had been to in Alaska. This is also where I met Pam the love of my life/ future wife. We met on Ok Cupid and to be honest our first was a bit akward. As time marched on we quickly found that we had a lot in common and had similar dreams. She made it clear very early on that we would dogs and probably a lot of them.
