We all feel sad and depressed sometimes, and I find
that the best cure is to focus on what I CAN do, and
I sometimes surprise myself! In my regular chair I
can roll faster than my fittest friends can run, just
over 8 miles an hour on the local bike path. On my
handcycle I can keep up with all but my fastest
cycling buddies, especially if there are no big hills,
and it's just the right speed for my girlfriend!
Sometimes I wish I could do these things "normally"
still, and not have people ask questions, but most of
the time their questions are about equipment and
things and they don't mean to be nosy, they're just
curious. I sure would have been when I was a walker.
Who knew why handcyclists put their cranks parallel
instead of perpendicular?

You've found what works for you, what often works for me, too. When frustrated with what I can't do, I focus on what I can.
Seems to make a big difference.
Glad you're enjoying racing your running buds on tracks.
I tend to enjoy speed bumps in parking lots, but have yet to catch air.
