Nick Roumonada has a story that is truly moving. His local TV station showcased his story as he prepare to compete and complete his third Ironman.
Here is a bit about his background story:
Due to an unrelated injury in 2008 which left him unable to continue performing as a trumpet player, Nick decided that all the hours he once spent practicing his art would now be devoted to athletic pursuits. After becoming frustrated with running on a walking leg, he reached out to A Step Ahead Prosthetics. With assistance from the Challenged Athletes Foundation, A Step Ahead was able to build him a running leg that will be able to take him anywhere he wants to go. One week after receiving his Flex Foot Run, Nick entered and finished a 1/2 Marathon Trail Race and has been training ever since with the help of coach David Balsley and the whole team at A Step Ahead.
