My daughter began running marathons and triathlons in the years since she became deaf at 18. She is one of my heroes. She introduced me to the story of her hero, Scott Rigsby, a double amputee who completed the Hawaii Ironman Triathlon with the help of high tech prosthetic legs.

Last week, I saw Scott leading a “boot camp” type workout group on a run when I was driving to work. Immediately when I got to the office, I had to send a text message to my daughter in Rochester, NY, that I had seen her hero in action.
