An Inspirational Must-Read: Running Through Life's Storms

Larry Haddock's inspirational story will leave you speechless and motivated to live your life to the fullest.
 
Larry was born and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado.  In high school he ran cross country, and was the first to ever run 2,500 miles in off-seasons, between cross country and track. He also led his high school cross country team to the Colorado state championship, coming in 3rd place, individually.  He then went on to attend Brigham Young University, and serve a two year LDS mission in Spain.
 
Upon returning to BYU after his mission, Larry was coming home from a late night date in Salt Lake City when he fell asleep while driving and ran into a cement wall.  After several months in a coma he awoke and began learning basic life functions all over again.  He has a traumatic brain injury which has left him with left hemiparesis, left vision loss, and short term memory issues.  Despite the challenges, Larry decided to continue his education at Weber State, and eventually received his Associates Degree in the Arts. Shortly after, a friend took him to a Mid-Single Adult institute class where he met a girl with a similar traumatic brain injury.  They are now happily married and living the dream. 
 
Larry recently wrote his book I'm All Right to inspire others who may be going through difficult times.  You will be rededicated to living life to the fullest after reading his story of accomplishing goals, working through trials, and enjoying life even when bombarded with curve balls.
