Domonic Corradin was a sophomore in high school when a car accident severed his spinal cord and paralyzed his lower body. He wasted little time getting back to his athletic life, and found a love for hand cycling. Now he teaches and rides competitively. The sport has taken him all over the world and led him to meet some truly inspiring people in his similar situation.

Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance by Alex Hutchinson

[two_third last=”yes”]

“Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance” by Alex Hutchinson

Limits are an illusion. This book is a revolutionary account of the science and psychology of endurance, revealing the secrets of reaching the extra potential within us all. The capacity to endure is the key trait that underlies great performance in virtually every field—from a 100-meter sprint to a 100-mile ultramarathon, from summiting Everest to acing final exams or completing any difficult project. But what if we all can go farther, push harder, and achieve more than we think we’re capable of?

“Marathon Mouse” by Amy Dixon

The mice of New York City dread the day of the New York City Marathon more than any other—the crowds, the large shoes, the noise. All of them, that is, except for Preston. The story of Preston, who sets a goal and then follows through to achieve it, is a wonderful teaching tool for children, whether or not they are interested in running races.
