High Five #HighFivesAthlete Jim Harris on your recovery strides this week!
Jim Harris continues to work toward a full recovery by staying positive and working hard. You can find him at the Ripple Effect in Carbondale, CO working on strength and technique or chatting with the DirtBag Diaries podcast crew!
“I tried this a bunch last summer at the CR Johnson Healing Center with personal trainer, Chris Cloyd, and have done thousands since. But finally after working out at the Ripple Effect in Carbondale, I have the accuracy to stand up no hands without launching myself sideways.” – #HighFivesAthlete Jim Harris
Art and everything outdoors have been Jim Harris’ lifelong passions as evidenced in his work as a photographer, videographer, illustrator, writer, and adventurer. The Salt Lake City native was involved in a ski accident on November 24th, 2014 causing fractures in his T7/8 and C2/3 vertebrae. The accident left him temporarily paralyzed at the T6 level, but a great attitude and work ethic paired with an amazing support system, Jim plans to put the setback behind him and return to the mountains where he belongs.
“I REGARD IT AS THE FOREMOST TASK OF EDUCATION TO INSURE THE SURVIVAL OF THESE QUALITIES: AN ENTERPRISING CURIOSITY, AN UNDEFEATABLE SPIRIT, TENACITY IN PURSUIT, READINESS FOR SENSIBLE SELF DENIAL, AND ABOVE ALL, COMPASSION.”
