Uvalde resident Mayra Vasquez is proof that there are no excuses when it comes to exercising. She started the No Excuse Mom-Uvalde group in January of 2016, nearly two years before her life was upended.

The fitness coach has regained 80 percent of her mobility following a Dec. 25, 2017, auto crash that left her with spinal fractures, a serious neck fracture and massive internal bleeding. She was airlifted to a San Antonio hospital that night and remained hospitalized until Jan. 5.

“There was a trip to Miami in August that I missed due to a work commitment. But I planned to go to the next trip. My mom, she encouraged me to go,” Vasquez said. “She told me I needed to take the opportunity because you never know how many there will be.”
