Fourteen months ago, 1st Lieutenant Ryan McGuire lost his leg in a boating accident on Lake Amistad. The wind caught an inner tube sitting next to him, and the rope attached to the tube yanked him from the boat and he flew out at 40 miles per hour, dislocating his hip, fracturing his pelvis and mangling his foot.
Over the next year, McGuire received a prosthetic leg and undergone intense rehab and resumed running. Since then, he has run the Air Force Marathon and Warrior Games, wearing Newtons. You can read his inspiring story of determination here.
