Hi Exo Fam,

I’m excited to say that I am back on course! This past Sunday, I ran my first race (a 10k) since my car accident in December! (*happy dance*) I’m actually still laughing because I thought when I signed up it said the race was a road course, but it ended up being a hybrid trail race… luckily ExoSym likes a little rocky dirt action. ☺ As I look back at the last eight months, it’s no doubt been a tough year and in some ways I don’t know how I made it through this time, but to say it was Christ’s strength and not my own that carried me through. The journey back from life’s challenges is never easy, but we never walk alone. ♥

First race back!

A couple weeks ago, I also wrapped up my therapy thanks to my amazing therapy team at Texas PTS. For 7.5 months, this team stood by my side pushing me through my recovery. They got me so far and I am forever grateful for their dedication and compassion. This team never stopped believing in me. In life, we never know what challenges we will face, but I believe and have seen it throughout my life, that God always puts the right people on our path when we need them the most. (#ryanblanck)

My PT Team 🙂

My wish for each of you is that when you face hard times, you look to the strength within you and never let someone tell you what you can or cannot do. If I had listened to the doctors who told me I would never run again, I wouldn’t be where I am today. They may know the odds, but they don’t know you. ♥


A big shoutout to all my Exobuddies and the Hanger Team who have encouraged me throughout this year as I recovered from my accident. The ExoSym group is truly a family of its own. Thank you is not enough for how much your support has meant to me. Big hug from Texas! Love to you all. I am back on course! TEAM EXOSYM. NEVER GIVE UP.

  3. 10k! Brilliant, Beth! Enjoy basking in your awesomeness!

    I’m feeling pretty awesome too – I can now run for a few seconds at a time, and am hoping to start joining those seconds together into minutes very soon.

    Much Love. xx

  4. I am so happy for you Beth! You are the definition of hard work and determination. Trust in the process, the device, and most importantly, God. You are a natural leader and I’m so happy to have you to look up to and to guide the way for us! We are #exofamily because of you my friend xoxo
