One foot in front of the other, and then constant movement in a forward direction is the parallel mission of Nels Matson’s body and mind, as he continues to use ultra endurance athletics to advocate for CHD. You may have read a mention of Nels’ recent event in the July ACHA e-newsletter. On July 14-15 he participated in the Back on My Feet 24-hour ultra run in Philadelphia, PA. As Nels long-term girlfriend and skilled massage therapist, I fulfilled the crew support role for him on this inspiring endeavor. I hope to share the insider perspective of life with an ACHDer who lives with purpose.
