This past Saturday, 4/25/2015, my younger brother Brent and I completed the 10K of the Illinois Marathon in 1:39:45.  What's remarkable about that is that on 11/4/2011, Brent had a stroke that left him paralyzed on his left side. 
It's a long story.  Physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, 8 moves to and from different facilities in 2 states, countless friends, kind strangers ... I was able to move Brent to a wonderful place in the town where I live.  And on Saturday, with the help of a running chair, we achieved another milestone in the Hobgood family.

This is Brent walking toward the finish line with me.

  Be happy, healthy, and follow the guidelines for stroke prevention:)
