This Is What Racing For Your Life Looks Like

"Stop at never—It feels amazing. So many road blocks and people counting me out, but I just kept overcoming. I'm thrilled and honored to represent everybody out there fighting for a dream."


29-year-old Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones had microsurgery last August to repair a tethered spinal cord. The condition limited movement of the cord within her spinal column (leading to progressive loss of function and pain). Yet take a look at her photo above and you get the idea that it didn't stop her career.

Jones has made a comeback in a major way. She placed third in the 100-meter hurdles, propelling her into London’s Summer Olympic Games. (Woo hoo!) This just goes to show that the possibilities are endless for someone with a dream.
