But on October 8th, 2012 just before I left for New Zealand, she was hit by a car while out on a training ride by an unlicensed driver. She broke her neck and her back and for a while, we feared she would not live. However, faith and determination shines in this woman, and she is on her way to making a full recovery.
Nick pushed her the entire 13 miles then helped her across the finish line, where she burst into tears and the photo below was captured. Since then it has gone viral on the internet and the two of them are appearing in several Day time television shows to share their wonderful story of support and recovery together.
