Toughest. Kid. Ever.

I meant to post this a long time ago, but it slipped my mind.

Nick Nelson is - without question - the toughest damn 9 year old Minnesota has ever produced.

He chose to have his lower leg amputated so he could, as he put it, "Run with my friends."

I couldn't embed the video, but you'll find the whole story here.

In addition to being the toughest mother around, he also has a totally awesome, super dry, moderately sarcastic sense of humor I've never seen in a person younger than 25.

I really hope he takes up running...cause I'd love to get my ass kicked by this cat.

KARE 11 had another little piece on Nick this evening'a news - he's taking golf lessons and scored a set of clubs from the PGA. Amazing kid.
