Gary Miracle always has been a runner.
In his younger days, Miracle was a member of Rockledge High School’s state championship 4×800 relay team in the 1999-2000 school year.
Through the years the youth soccer and football coach and father of four had done his best to stay in shape.
But nowadays, he’s just looking to complete a 2-mile run.
“Yeah, you don’t usually see guys without arms and legs (in foot races),” he says.
The lifelong Rockledge resident plans to participate in the Tailgate 2 Miler on Aug. 15 in Viera because he now has the prosthetics that will allow it. They give him a new hope to help him move beyond what has befallen him the last two years.
