Triple amputee veteran completes grueling 10.5 mile endurance race called The Beast over five-hours to honor fallen U.S. soldiers


Having lost both his legs and an arm in Afghanistan in 2010, this weekend Love took to Leesburg, Virginia, in an extreme endurance test called The Spartan Race with his eight-man other comrades of Team X.T.R.E.M.E.

Covered in mud, five hours after starting, triple amputee Corporal Todd Love charges to the finish line after competing over ten miles of rugged terrain across 75 obstacles in an event called The Beast.

Daily Mail





The race is designed to push all the participants to their limit, mentally and physically and the fact that a man with no legs and only one arm managed to complete all 10.5 miles and 75 obstacles has inspired millions.

He has refused to let his injuries prevent him from living his life to the fullest of his abilities.

Marine Cpl. Todd Simpson of Acworth, Georgia is a third generation marine.

This needs to be brought up, it's an old thread.

I never thought at my age I'd find a hero, but this guy is beyond astounding.

If you, well if I anyway, ever feel the need to whine and complain about something ...I just need to think about Todd Love.

Here is a little update on his life, from June 2014.
