Sport specific information

When and where did you begin this sport?
He started running after he began to adjust to losing his sight in 2010.
Why this sport?
"When I first started losing my vision, I couldn't run or I couldn't be athletic - or I thought I couldn't. But once I got a little bit more adjusted to working with my cane and everything like that, I went to the gym one time and we ran around the indoor track and I was like, 'I think I can run.' I just kept running, because it was something I thought I couldn't do. And now I want to do it a lot, because I didn't think I could do it."
