Scott Davidson

I am a father, adventure athlete, author, podcaster and I happen to be born with a severe version of bilateral clubfoot. I am based in  Las Vegas, NV. 

 

I am focused on experiencing as much adventure as possible and maximizing my mobility. I am happiest when my mind and body are being tested. I love runs, rucking, OCRs, dropping some weights and scrambling up mountains. Everyday I challenge myself mentally and physically. 

You can find me mostly on Instagram, TikTok, and somewhat on Facebook. I share my life as a father and athlete navigating the challenges of physical disability. My message is for all because we everyone faces adversity it's just the variables that are different. I also talk about getting bullied, receiving negative outlooks from medical professions and other challenges. I am thankful for these challenges because they are necessary in order for me to realize my potential. 

I write on the subjects of minimalism and adapting.

Adaptive

I was born in Pittsburgh, PA at Magee Women's Hospital and at birth it was discovered that I was born with a congenital birth defect called CETV or more commonly known as clubfoot. My situation is particularly severe, impacting both lower limbs, and medical doctors said I wouldn't walk as an adult. I’ve had extensive treatments throughout childhood including casting and Post-Medial Release surgeries on both lower limbs. This disability impacts not only my feet, but also the soft tissues in my lower legs, the patellofemoral joints and hips. With pride, I continue to push forward despite the challenges and invest time and energy into advocating for and empowering not only the disability community but any human that is suffering.   

 

Competing

On occasion I still compete. I’ve won or placed in adaptive and traditional running competitions. A big reason I choose running is because it’s the most difficult sport for my adaptation. I don't seek an easy road. I enjoy punishing my body and soul. In 2019, I placed second with my team in the 2019 Para Spartan World Championships. This race aired on ESPN and was the second Para Spartan OCR World Championship. I've also placed in running events that are non-adaptive. This may not seem like much, but know that doctors stated I wouldn't be able to walk as an adult and I am still clocking miles.
