A special hero

On the right is Noah, one of the more than 6-hundred athletes braving the “Barbarian Challenge” near Gadsden, Alabama.  It’s an extreme event commonly called a “Mud Run”   You can see that Noah is wearing a racing prosthetic on his left leg.  Noah is a veteran of the war in Irag.   He lost both his left leg and arm to an “improvised explosion device” (IED).   Noah doesn’t let that stop him from competing in some of the toughest terrain and conditions.    I admire and salute this special hero!
