A few words today:
Englishwoman Claire Lomas was paralysed from the chest down in 2007 following a horse-riding accident. These pics are from the London Marathon, which she completed yesterday in a 'bionic suit' ... 16 days after the winner.

Thank you for making my day with this. I have felt some of what she is expressing in the first photo, and I am relishing what she is showing in the last photo!!!

@Snowcatcher - an incredible woman, just the idea of doing a run like that never mind 16 days of moving ...
