Running man: In less than a year, MS patient goes from barely crawling to running a marathon | Ottawa Citizen

A year ago, the Smiths Falls-area man would fill it with weights for support while he painfully learned to run again after a bone-marrow transplant.

Prior to the life-changing treatment, a devastating multiple sclerosis attack had left him unable even to crawl. He was forced to pull himself around his house with his hands.

Today, Hurdis is training for a marathon, and that is just the beginning. So far, in addition to regular training, he has run 60 kilometres in one go and he is aiming for ultra-marathons and more long-distance running.

This is an inspiring story about thriving after being devastated with multiple sclerosis.
