In podcast #93, I am joined by Sara Tabor, a 30 something woman paralyzed 4 years ago in a bizarre accident, who went on to discover a new sport post-injury (where females are still the minority) – sled hockey.
We talk about her injury to the very last section of the spinal cord (a section of the cord a lot of people don’t know about) and how the incomplete nature of it (being able to walk short distances) has affected her life.
We also talk about her big move this year from Minneapolis to New York City (for both romantic and career reasons) and figuring out the accessibility in this epic city, from successfully getting into the sort of accessible Michael Kors shop on 5th Avenue, to trying to find wc-friendly subway stations in Brooklyn and Queens; the borough she’d love to move to next spring).
How is she doing out there? Has she ran into crazy people on the subway (of course she has)? Tune in to our last show of 2012! Listen below. Run time is 66 minutes. No Free Rides is brought to you by EasyStand.
