Amputee Olympian is Ready To Go!

Have you seen Oscar Pistorius run yet?  He's the South African double amputee who fought for the right to compete against able bodied athletes.  This summer he will be competing for gold in both the 400 meter and 4×400 meter relay.

You can see him run here.

The latest news on his debut is here!

Seriously….How cool is that?

My Dad lost part of his leg in 1993 and he all he wanted to do was golf again.  He worked hard to get there and did eventually achieve that goal!  Memory of his struggle is something that inspires me to do better.

I hope you are enjoying the Olympics.  My family sure is…  I'm here if you need help with anything.
