Claire Lomas fell from a horse and subsequently paralyzed from the chest down in 2017.
Over five days in September, she finished a half-marathon in England with the assistance of a “robotic exoskeleton,” according to Catherine Thorbecke of ABC News, and raised money for the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation in the process.
Lomas, who is also pregnant, told Thorbecke: “It is very hard work physically and mentally, especially with my injury, as I have no core strength and no feeling from the chest down. I can’t even feel the ground. Each slope, bump, hill is a huge obstacle.”
Lomas added, per Thorbecke: “When I take something on, I am desperate to give it my all and complete it.”
