Laura Cattivera aged 46 years old has focal dystonia which causes involuntary spasms and means she can't run straight. She didn't want to give up running so she found another way and this was running backwards. When she does this she doesn't get the spasms and can enjoy what she loves doing.
Great to see and hear Laura that you can still go out and enjoy what you love doing, keep being awesome and inspiring others.
