Whitney writes, “At the age of nine, Sally Whitney’s marathon journey began.

“At an Arizona ranch, Sally Whitney was suddenly thrown headfirst from a runaway horse. Landing on her head, she suffered a traumatic brain injury resulting in partial paralysis on the left side of her body and a three-week coma. She struggled, unsuccessfully, to reenter the social life of a ten-year-old.

“Still in social isolation many years down the road, she rehabilitated the best she could on her own. One of her efforts to continue her lifelong road of rehab, and due to the fitness craze in 1982, she found herself in the presence of a nearby gym. As Sally limped into the gym, the manager offered her entry blank for the Phoenix 10K Race being held the very next day.

“Sally took the entry blank as a courtesy. The pamphlet’s heading caught her attention, thus presenting her with another challenge. It read, ‘Run, Jog, Walk, or Crawl: The Phoenix 10K.” She thought, What the heck, I can crawl.

“Doors she opened before this conquest—getting a job, for instance—and other triumphs taken for granted by many became huge barriers for the brain-injured. Sally, though, couldn’t or wouldn’t back down from life’s challenges.

“Besides being a thriving member of her Senior Citizen Independent Living Apartment Complex, she continues after thirty-six years to actively participate in 5K walks to the cheers of many in the Phoenix area. In 2013, she was admitted to the Arizona Runners Hall of Fame.”
