Smart Smoothies

I was in a disabling motorcycle accident. The doctors said that I would never walk, or think for myself ever again...
Marcus Lacewell’s yellow Smart Car catches the eye as you drive past Lacewell’s Smart Smoothies on Market St. and Kerr Ave.  His camper is set up six days a week.
Marcus is a numbers guy, the “smart kid” who spent time tutoring others and pursued an engineering education at NC State.  Then tragedy struck-
But eventually, Marcus began again, enrolling at Cape Fear Community College.  “I wanted to see where my head was at." He finished CFCC with strong grades, and enrolled again at NCSU.
Marcus is a fit person, very smart and well-educated.  Marcus knows that he no longer looks like a typical tutor.  “I can see it from your side,” he says. “I can still tutor, but I know that someone on the outside looking at me, might not expect that from me.  I’m also an athletic recruiter, but I know I don’t look like I could be.”  It’s this hard reality that helped Marcus come up with the idea of something he could do.  The small space of the smoothie trailer is easier for him to navigate.  And, he can haul the trailer and set up the whole operation by himself. 
Marcus’ smoothies aren’t typical either.  He learned a lot about nutrition during his recovery and now, he sells smoothies that are delicious and good for you.  Along with strawberry, blueberry, pineapple, banana and other fruits, Marcus offers smoothies made from spinach, broccoli and kale, and uses honey, not sugar.
There is nothing easy about Marcus’ daily routine.  It takes him 45 minutes to set up each day and another 45 minutes to strike the trailer each day before he heads home.  But Marcus has already far exceeded the expectations of his doctors, working hard to achieve every milestone.  “I know I have to work harder, and if I’m not where I want to be yet, it’s because I haven’t put in all the work,” he says. His unshakable attitude seems to propel him forward, despite every obstacle in his way.

Fruit smoothies are one of my favorite drinks. It is not only tasty, But it is jam packed with vitamins. This is a very interesting blog because it's about the story of smoothies making the impossible possible. The story about this guy being in an accident and the doctors saying that he won't be able to walk again, but miraculously he did walk again. He really did put all the effort to walk again and the smoothie only played a partial role in aiding him.

It was sad to know that you have been through a bad time and on the other side it was also good to know that you have recovered so soon. You should be really careful once you are being such situation.
