Hannah Gavios runs using crutches. The New Yorker calls it crutching or going for a crutch. An avid runner since high school, Gavios suffered a spinal cord injury after a horrific attack in 2016 that left her partially paralyzed. Unable to imagine a life without running, Gavios learned how to run in a different way. She also became a certified yoga instructor and began studying Krav Maga. In 2019, she completed the 2019 New York City Marathon. No matter how much youve lost in your life, theres always gains, Gavios says.
