Disabled Vets Run the "Spartan Super Heat" Race - Heroes Face Incredible Adversity

"Team X-T.R.E.M.E." runs the Spartan Super Heat, and show us, once again, the high price of war, and just how indomitable the human spirit is.

The 30 year old Alabama native is missing two limbs, his left arm above the elbow and his leg above the knee. He would be the first ever Spartan Racer to parachute his way into the race but when he landed, in the open field in Leesburg, VA he wasn’t alone. A team was waiting, Team X-T.R.E.M.E., a group of incredible individuals that includes Sgt. Jonathan Mozingo, amputee of the left leg below the knee and United States Marine, Cpl. Todd Love, trimembral amputee of both legs above the knee and left arm below the elbow. In addition to the three wounded warrior athletes, the team had an additional five members including Team X-T.R.E.M.E. founder, Jeremy Soles who had a bagpiper usher them over to the start line for their heat.

I don't feel sorry for these heroes. They have demonstrated they don't need sympathy.

Regardless if you agree with the wars our government have gotten involved in... These men (and women) are heroes, pure and simple. S+F

Here is a bit more on the guy in the first two pics, Todd Love;

Homecoming fit for a hero: Hundreds turn out for marine who lost three limbs in Afghanistan... and they even named a day after him

If they ever create a true "six-million dollar man" this would be the guy to start with.

Cool story, bro.

Takes guts to get back out there and do that. Props to all of them.
