Four days a week, more than 20 employees of the Dallas Police Department who work out with the CrossFit program at police headquarters run up and down stairs with weights, do box jumps or push Detective Pamela Starr’s car across the parking lot.
But most of them say they’re not nearly as fit as their trainer. And many of them don’t know that four years ago, Starr was told she wouldn’t be able to run again. Starr, 41, had a cancerous tumor in her spinal cord.
“I just don’t talk about it,” Starr said. “One, because it was devastating, but also because it’s just not as big a deal to me anymore. I kind of worked through all of that.”
In 2005, Starr broke her leg during a soccer game. During the rehabilitation process, she experienced pain in her legs, and by the end of the summer, the pain was in her chest.
