Noah Galloway is a retired Army Sergeant who lost his left arm above the elbow and left leg above the knee in an IED attack while serving his country in Iraq. Following such a tragedy, it would have been understandable for Noah to excuse himself from action. He had something else in mind however.
Noah Galloway is now more active than ever before. A few of his hobbies since suffering the attack include completing multiple Tough Mudders, several Warrior Dash events, a few marathons, a Spartan race and a Barbarian Challenge. It appears that he’s just getting started with no intention of ever slowing down.
A video of Noah can be seen below.
I actually first learned of Noah after seeing him perform one arm rollouts with a barbell. You can see that video through the following Facebook link:
To say that I’m inspired by Noah Galloway is an understatement. Seeing him bounce back with such determination after suffering such an unimaginable tragedy is beyond inspiring. There’s no denying that we all experience trials and tribulations throughout life, but witnessing Noah in action helps to put our bumps and bruises into perspective. If he can wake up each day ready to exercise his body and mind, how can anyone make an excuse to do otherwise?
Get up, get moving, and cherish the gift of life while it lasts. It can come and go in an instant. To waste it without enjoying the benefits of health and vitality is perhaps the greatest tragedy of all.
He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else. – Benjamin Franklin2 comments
