Today I met up with one of the most inspiring and interesting people living in Calgary. Her name is Norma Bastidas and she is a woman on a mission. We both have a friend in common and also share the trials and tribulations of being single moms of boys. A quick coffee turned into three hours of sharing and chatting about our lives, the cultural infusions of living in other countries, and as mothers with a child who has a disability. Instead of wallowing in a pity party, Norma has embarked on a mission to run 7 Ultra marathons on 7 Continents in 7 Months to raise awareness for people who live with visual disabilities. She writes about her races on her site and she is truly an inspiration for all moms who have children with disabilities.
Norma Bastidas...remember that name.
