I'm thankful for my health and well-working body!

I was working out this morning at the local gym and I grabbed a Runners World magazine to flip through as I did a little biking and they had an article on runners and tri-athletes that had prosthetics. I was shocked. This man had prosthetics on both legs from knee down. He completed an Ironman championship race in under 17 hours. WOW. (I looked for the article online but couldn't find it, if I do I'll post it.) I was totally floored. How many of us have two good working legs and choose to do nothing? I was pondering that during class today. How can you loose both legs at the knee and have to relearn to walk and then decide that you want to do an Ironman....? Good for him!
