This was supposed to be a week away of studying, learning, movement. This was my BIG week. 1.5 years of preparation. I tore ligaments in my knee THE FIRST HOUR I was with the world renowned Katy Bowman (the creator if this amazing program/school). Well, I DID want to make an impression....check!
THEN, 3 days later I am with the group practicing my walking. I put my new backpack down next to my crutches on the side of the road. I gimp away. A car drives by, lady opens the passenger door AND STEALS my bag and drives away. My wallet, money, credit cards, pain medicine, course work etc. I try to gimp after the car, shockingly to no avail. I am now traveling on crutches, in pain, with no money, medicine or resilience left. Awesome.
That was the bad part of the story.
The good part(s). Within one hour of my bag being stolen a near stranger loaned my $100 in cash to get by. A fantastic chiropractor was in class with me and she gave me daily knee massages and treatment with this RRT Machine. All my classmates and teachers were so helpful, bringing me things, propping me up, waiting on me, taking great care of me. And two of the people in my class TOOK off chasing the car down! And one was on the phone and handled the police call for me. Thank you RES tribe for being the generous, kind and super cool people that you are.
I did pass the Restorative Exercise Specialist exam. It is one of the best programs and most informative I have ever taken. I also ordered that amazing RRT machine because it was so helpful. These are two things that will help me deliver better health and wellness to you, which is what I want to do. And for that I am very thankful and excited.
