That kind of motivation is incredible. I read about a double amputee who summitted Mt Everest. Also amazing. A while back I rode into a Wounded Warriors bike ride in Annapolis and saw dozens of these guys (and a few women as well). It gives you pause when you are inclined to gripe about some every day setback.
