Kayla Montgomery is one of the fastest young distance runners in the country. She also has Multiple Sclerosis. Because of this disease, she can’t feel the pain in her legs while she runs long distances. She’s unable to control the finish when she breaks the motion. Her legs become numb, and as she crosses the finish line, she needs someone to catch her fall. That someone is her coach.
Coach Patrick Cromwell waits for her at the finish to literally catch her in his arms. Then, they begin an ice treatment, so she can regain sensation in her legs.
