You have to start somewhere

Posted on December 28 2017

Phil-Gaffey,-Fleet-Feet-Nashua-2-“I was born without a leg. When I began running, I suffered through many blisters on my stump. With the assistance of my prosthetist, I was able to obtain a running leg. With this, I was able to run farther, faster and with far fewer blisters. In 2015, I completed the Baystate Marathon, which seemed next to impossible when I first began running. The thing I appreciate most about the people who run with me is that they don’t view me as a guy without a leg who runs. But rather, they view me as a runner who happens to be missing a leg. I have often been approached by people who say they could never do what I do or are amazed at how far my distances are. I remind them that I had to start somewhere, just like they did. My first mile took 20 minutes to finish and I continued to build from there.” – HOKA fan Phil Gaffey from Nashua, NH
