Army Ten-Miler

Most guys run on two legs and guts. Some have only one leg, so they use extra guts:

Secretary of the Army Pete Geren talks with U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Jonathan Holsey before the start of the 24th annual Army Ten-Miler in Arlington, Va., Oct. 5, 2008. Holsey was wounded in Iraq by a roadside bomb, which resulted in his left leg being amputated below the knee. Almost 27,000 runners participated in the race through the streets of Washington, D.C., and Arlington. (DoD photo by D. Myles Cullen, U.S. Army/Released)

Murdoc is less than two weeks from his first marathon, and after training hard for it he knows how challenging it can be. He can’t imagine going through it without all the God-given tools.
