EP 59: Adam Popp

Learn how to cherish the things you take for granted.

In this episode Andy talks to Adam Popp.  Adam was a member of an Air Force unit that disarmed improvised explosive devices.  In 2007 Adam was on patrol in Eastern Afghanistan when an IED detonated before he could disable it.  The explosion severely wounded him and forced his right leg to be amputated above the knee.   

Listen to find out how Adam went from being told that he will never run again to how he has gone on to complete several marathons and ultras.  In fact his first ultra was a 100 miler and he ran another another the 10 year anniversary of his accident.
