LEADMAN: The Dave Mackey Story – Very Inspiring Running Story – 😃 THANKS FOR WATCHING 👍

https://youtu.be/NbbE1ssCIMk

VERY, VERY INSPIRING RUNNING STORY On May 23, 2015, the unimaginable happened to Altra Running and CamelBak athlete Dave Mackey on a routine training run.

At the summit of Bear Peak, a giant boulder became dislodged sending Mackey tumbling down the mountain before it also landed on him crushing his left leg. After a series of unsuccessful surgeries over the next year plus to get back to normal, he and his family made the difficult decision to amputate.

This is his story about perseverance and coming back from the injury to attempting to complete the Leadville Race Series to become the first ever leg amputee to call himself a “Leadman”.
