Maddy was diagnosed with cerebral palsy two months after she was born. 'It was one of the worst days of our lives,' van Beek told Fox 17. 'Everybody prays that their children are healthy and for eight years I still wished that she had been a healthy child, but if she wouldn't have been like she is then we wouldn't be the people that we are today.'
在麦蒂出生后两个月,她被诊断为脑瘫。范·比克告诉福克斯电视台说:“这是我们一生中最糟糕的日子之一。每个人都祈祷自己的孩子是健康的,有八年时间我仍希望她是一个健康的孩子。但如果她是一个健康的孩子,我们也不会成为今天的自己了。”

His outlook changed when he saw his daughter taking part in a marathon more than four years ago, and saw the pure joy on her face.
比克的观点在四年前发生了变化,他看到当他带着女儿参加马拉松比赛时,女儿的脸上那纯净的笑容。

'I watched my daughter Maddy being pushed in the Grand Rapids Marathon,' he recounted on his blog.
比克在他的博客上重述了这个故事:“在大急流城马拉松比赛中,我的女儿被推着参加比赛。”

'To see her being so happy and enjoying every bump in the road was more than I could handle, my emotions took over.
“看到麦蒂这么开心,享受着路上的每一次颠簸,我的心被彻底打动,我被征服了。”

'Shortly after that day I gave up smoking 2 packs a day and chewing a tin a day to be better, for Maddy. It has been a long road, with many bumps, but we are better.'
“从那天开始,为了麦蒂,我每天嚼一罐口香糖来戒掉一天两包烟的坏习惯。我们已经走过了一条充满艰辛的长路,但我们正变得更好。”

In a bid to make his daughter happy, he began training for outdoor races in 2008. Van Beek, who was out of shape and a heavy smoker, also realised it would be beneficial for him.
为了让女儿开心,范·比克在2008年开始参加户外长跑锻炼。曾经是有很大烟瘾而且很肥胖的范·比克,也同样意识到锻炼对他同样很有好处。
