A single footstep changes all the future steps that an American Marine on patrol in Afghanistan would ever take. After triggering an EID and losing his right leg below the knee, our guest Eric McElvenny turned to uncharted territory - having never completed a single triathlon or even a running event, for that matter, he challenged himself to complete an Ironman.

With the help, love, and support from his family, friends, and the Challenged Athletes Foundation, Eric has fought through obstacles, logged thousands of miles, and achieved more than even he thought possible.

Did he succeed in finishing an Ironman? Well, you'll just have to listen to find out.
