This Triple Amputee Is A Stone Cold Badass

Warning: May cause spontaneous desire to achieve greatness. Corporal Todd Love isn’t going to let something like losing all but one of his limbs slow him down.

The Spartan Race is an international obstacle course that challenges participants to push themselves beyond their limits. Which is exactly what Corporal Todd Love chose to do as part of Team E-X.T.R.E.M.E., an eight member group that signed up to run the Beast, the most brutal of all Spartan events.

Over a span of five and a half hours, 22-year-old Love covered 10.5 miles of muddy, rugged terrain and completed over 75 obstacles with minimal help from his team.

The corporal had been preparing for the challenge ever since he began to recover from the explosion in Afghanistan in 2010 that left him with only one of his natural limbs. Love said he set out, “…to push [myself] in all things physical, proving that overcoming obstacles isn’t just something you attempt, it’s something that you embrace.”
