COMPETITOR STORY – HUGH SMITH

A regular look at some of the inspirational stories from some of our amazing DB Maxers……

This week it’s Hugh Smith who took part in the Westonbirt 10k with us.

I suffered a severe Traumatic Brain Injury in 2005, having fought back from my deathbed I made a promise to myself that all the time I could, I would run. After a long recovery, at 21 I had to learn to walk again and spent a little over 5 months in hospital. Once in the ‘real’ world again I built my ability up to complete a 5km then 10km run. Never one to look back I now complete multiple 10km runs each year (18 to date in the last 2 years). It’s with the fantastic organisation from DBMax that this is continually possible. I wrote about my experience to help others that good can come from bad….anything is possible. The New Me; My Journey Back From a Traumatic Brain Injury by Hugh Smith
