Real Man, Solider Completes Marathon on Crutches

Inspiring story...

Short story is this soldier was hurt in Iraq and told he would never walk again. He said nuts to that and completed the London marathon over 2 weeks on crutches to help raise money to help other injured soldiers. The best part was at the termination of his effort, someone asked if he would take a warm bath to relax himself. He said no, "I'm going to have a drink" and took a shot of something good Very impressive effort. Oh, he also has already rowed the English Channel and plans to climb El Capitan next.
